Lyrical, reflective and bound in an immersive journalism style - the journey takes place against the backdrop of a contemporary Europe in crisis, and is recounted through vividly told vignettes and a series of affecting photography.

While subverting traditional forms of travel narrative, a pulsating rhythm and omnipresent tension bleeds through this quirky, lucid and sometimes dark nonfiction travel novella.


Eamonn Sheehy speaking on his writing in 'The Lonely Crowd' Journal.

 "Nowadays destinations for me are a mental shakeup. We live in a planet of so many realities. If I can leave the space I live within and drop into another reality, then I will. Witnessing the chaos of life while standing at a crossroads in West Beirut. Pushed between the sweat and adrenaline, amid overblown speakers in a Vilnius punk squat. Speaking with the solvent-high street kids on the streets of Siberia. There is a sensory aspect to all of this. As well as the want to understand other realities and tell the story of people on the fringe. That jolt — I’m looking to try and grasp and pack it into my paragraphs. It’s liberation from the European life I live in. I don’t believe we are meant to live a life in monotone. I write against it."
