(Paperback - Signed by Author) Summer In The City State - Ceuta To Tangier Through Fortress Europe
10.99 Euro Postpaid Worldwide Delivery
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

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.
Beirut 'Sabra and Shatila - Decades Without Justice' (SOLD OUT)
This booklet gives a brief overview of the Sabra and Shatila massacre in West Beirut 1982.; a murderous event for which no one has ever been held accountable. We then speak with Omar, a youth worker with Ma'an Youth Group in Beirut, about being a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon today.. Against a backdrop of a country struggling to get back on its feet following a decades long civil war, we see the pressure building and the heavy burdens people are suffering since the outbreak of war in neighboring Syria.
This 13 page booklet is beautifully designed and handprinted by Josephcarlough.com of Displaced Snail Publications (also on Etsy stores).
