Review:

"Tender, dark, hilarious, heartbreaking―I loved it" (Vogue)

"It’s been a long time since I read anything so compelling and satisfying. At times, incredibly funny, at others, heartrending" (Sarah Winman, author of Tin Man)

"'the most beautifully written and crafted novel ... heartbreaking'" (Santa Montefiore)

"By turns savvy, witty and achingly sad . . . This is a novelist at the top of his game." (The Mail on Sunday)

"I ran through the whole range of human emotions while reading this brilliant novel. It's a masterpiece." (Cathy Rentzenbrink, author of The Last Act of Love)

"Screamingly funny one minute and heartbreaking the next." (Daily Express)

"A special read" (BBC Radio 4 Front Row)

"Boyne creates lightness out of doom, humour out of desperately sad situations, creating a compelling page-turner... a terrific read." (The Press Association)

"An epic novel.... Worthy of the great master of the Irish comic novel, Flann O’Brien. The Heart’s Invisible Furies proves that John is not just one of Ireland’s best living novelists but also one of the best novelists of Ireland." (Sunday Express)

"Written with verve, humour and heart...at its core, The Heart’s Invisible Furies aspires to be not just the tale of Cyril Avery, a man buffeted by coincidence and circumstance, but the story of Ireland itself" (Irish Times)

Book Description:

Truly the best of John Boyne - hilarious, touching and deeply sad The Heart's Invisible Furies is the breakout book Boyne was born to write.
