'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.'

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 OBrien. The Hearts Invisible Furies proves that John is not just one of Irelands best living novelists but also one of the best novelists of Ireland. * Sunday Express * Written with verve, humour and heartat its core, The Hearts 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 *
