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, Robert Sheehan disappears into characters, challenging the complacencies of everyday experience, often from entirely unexpected angles.
Informed by the author's peripatetic life, Disappearing Act reflects on the absurdity of human behaviour. Sheehan delves deep into his characters' streams of self-talk and self-imposed delusions, exploring the dark impulses that lurk below the shiny surfaces of many outwardly normal lives.
Dark, provocative and often humorous, the collection will stay with the listener long after the book is finished.

“A dazzlingly eclectic collection of short stories” BEN ELTON
“Lots of great stories and voices. Reminded me of Irvine Welsh's short stories” FRANKIE BOYLE
