Living in the claustrophobic London suburb of Woodvale, and being surrounded by passive-aggressive mum-wars, isn’t helping. Neither is her increasingly pent-up anger at her once-perfect husband. Her only comrade in arms, best friend Bea, is the one thing keeping her sane. When Saoirse’s agent asks her to pitch for a book, she is horrified to discover the topic is motherhood. How can she possibly write a ‘warts and all’ account of being a mother without giving away what it’s really like?

Twenty-six-year-old Maggie Barnes is someone you would never look at twice. Living alone in a month-to-month sublet in London, with no family but an estranged sister, no boyfriend or partner, and not much in the way of friends, Maggie is just the kind of person who could vanish from the face of the earth without anyone taking notice. Or just the kind of person MI5 needs to thwart an international plot that puts all of Britain at risk. Now one young woman has the chance to be a hero - if she can think quickly enough to stay alive.

 After three years under siege in Sarajevo during the Bosnian War, Tom returns to Dublin a brittle, haunted shell of his former self, suffering from severe PTSD. Karl and Gus meet him at the airport, knowing they're unqualified to help their best friend yet determined to somehow see him through the darkness. Grasping at straws, they embark on a journey for an unlikely cure on the other side of the world, an experimental PTSD clinic on the California coast called RESTLESS SOULS. A wry, shambolic road trip that's at turns tremendously moving and darkly funny, Restless Souls wrestles with larger themes and meditations on grief and PTSD, and on the way our memories simultaneously comfort and restrict us from growing up and moving on.

Following the smash-hit sci-fi comedy The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe is the second part in Douglas Adams' multi-media phenomenon and cult classic series. If you've done six impossible things this morning, why not round it off with breakfast at Milliaways, the Restaurant at the end of the Universe? Which is exactly what the crew of the Heart of Gold plan to do. There's just the small matter of escaping the Vogans, avoiding being taken to the most totally evil world in the Galaxy and teaching a spaceship how to make a proper cup of tea. And did anyone actually make a reservation?
