What do you get when you take a thief, Moose, self-mutilating sexual dependent, Holy Roller, womanizer, right wing atheist, and oppose them with an irrepressible antagonist? In the Time of Their Restlessness Set in the 1970s, comes the tale of a ragtag collection of unlikely friends. They lean on each other and challenge each other. They rise and fall through their power struggles, personal tragedies and sexual awakenings and in the end must reinvent themselves. Among them, Michael Rossi and Ella Pace learn the lessons of life's bitter ironies the hard way. Michael buries his scars, whereas Ella, boldly and with defiance, wears hers outwardly. Their complex relationship becomes a game without ground rules that plays out over an ever-shifting landscape, and which sees the self-denial of one bring about the self-destruction of the other. They get by, though, as they say, with a little help from their friends. But it isn't until one among them falls that the need for faith is discovered and the meaning of life is revealed.
