But having deferred his flight to attend his grandfathers funeral, he stays behind to aid his grieving grandmother. Dublin 1916: Harry Colley is a Pathe Newsreel cameraman, recently back from London, with a Cinemachine and four newsreels ready to capture the events of Easter Week. This is his lifes work: to chronicle the Irish struggle for independence and share it with the world. Neil accepts her grandmothers request to read her fathers memoir. As he reads the reminiscences, he realizes that the newsreels spoken of in the text still exist. After viewing the reels, he sets off on a journey that will change his life, and the lives of all those around him, forever.

A timeless story of lost love and broken dreams that brilliantly counterpoints todays globalized generation with Irelands nationalist revolutionaries of 1916, Citizens creates a conversation across a century in a unique novel that has echoes of Don DeLillos Libra and Transatlantic by Colum McCann.
