From an idyllic archipelago on the Moroccan Mediterranean, 'Summer In The City State' takes a stirring trip through the little known Spanish enclave of Ceuta, on through Fortress Europe, and into the Rif cities of Northern Morocco.
Lyrical, reflective and bound in an immersive journalism style - the journey takes place against the backdrop of a contemporary Europe in crisis; 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.
“Rich detail clear eyed jewel tone poetry. A political coming-of-age. If Rimbaud were in the 21st century, he would travel with Eamonn Sheehy” - Susan MaierMoul

Wales Arts Review did a fine explorative review of 'Summer In The City State' recently - you can now read the article 'Neither More Nor Less: Eamonn Sheehy’s Summer In The City State', where writer Susan MaierMoul delves deeper into the workings of this nonfiction book.
We also love Susan MaierMoul's work. Her 'New York' series and 'Magnetic' storytelling project are fantastic narrative experiences you will no doubt enjoy.
