The Heart's Invisible Furies Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'A bold, funny epic' Observer'Compelling and satisfying . . . At times, incredibly funny, at others, heartrending' Sarah Winman, author of Still Life___Cyril Avery is not a real Avery.

At least, that's what his parents make sure to remind him.

Adopted as a baby, he feels more and more disconnected with the family that treats him more as a curious pet, rather than a beloved son. So, as a young adult, Cyril decides to embark on a quest to find his place in the world.

Sometimes misguided and often in the wrong place at the wrong time, life has dealt him a difficult hand but Cyril is resolute that he can change things, and find the courage to be himself. And in doing so, his story will come across that of Catherine Goggin, a young, pregnant woman finding herself alone and isolated at only sixteen.

There is a place in the world for both of them, and Cyril is determined to find it. The new novel by John Boyne, WATER, is available for pre-order now. ___What readers are saying:'The story of the life of one man, told against the backdrop of twentieth century Ireland' 'Simultaneously heart-breaking, funny and life-affirming.''Fantastic eccentric characters and dark humour is underpinned by a touching love story, perfect.''The saddest and happiest book I have read . . . told with great compassion and ultimately a great love of life.'
