Overview
-

Robert Sheehan is one of Ireland’s brightest stars of the screen, both at home and abroad. Best known for his roles in Love/Hate and The Umbrella Academy, Sheehan has received widespread critical acclaim for his acting talent.

In his debut collection of short stories, he disappears into characters, challenging the complacencies of everyday experience, often from entirely unexpected angles.

Surreal, intelligent, dark, and provocative, the collection presents a multitude of observations that will stay with the reader long after the book is finished.

Informed by the author’s peripatetic life, Disappearing Act reflects on the absurdity of human behavior. Sheehan delves deep into his characters’ streams of self-talk and self-imposed delusions, and explores the dark impulses that lurk below the shiny surfaces of many outwardly normal lives.

"A whacked-out, kaleidoscopic miasma of delightful abandon and fun." - Patrick McCabe
