Epic Cures brings together twenty-two short stories by master storyteller Tom Sheehan. Alan Lupo, of the Boston Globe, says, "Tom Sheehan dissects the life of everyman, for in peace and war and all the trauma and joy in between, he has known everyman. He masters the details of memory, in sight, sound, smell and feel, so that memory becomes memorable. Sheehan has the soul of John Dos Passos, of Carl Sandburg." Sheehan offers the cure for those readers who believe that only the novel can deliver the epic tale.
