Bestselling novelist John Boyne talks about his latest book, The Heart’s Invisible Furies.

The story follows adopted Cyril Avery’s misguided and foolish attempts to find a place in the world. Circumstance takes him to the one thing that will change his world, but will he have the courage to take his chance?

“By turns savvy, witty and achingly sad, this is a novelist at the top of his game.” Mail on Sunday

Boyne has written novels for both adults and young readers and they have been published in 45 languages. He is best known for his story about the Holocaust, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, which was turned into a successful film. Other works include The Absolutist and A History of Loneliness.

Here he talks to journalist and author of The Dead Wife’s Handbook Hannah Beckerman.

Programme of Irish literature and culture.
