    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
