What We Say: This epic story charts the beautiful and often heartbreaking life of protagonist Cyril Avery against the backdrop of seismic social change that happened between his birth in repressively conservative 1940s Ireland, through to the country’s legalisation of gay marriage in 2015. This book will make you smile and cry in equal measure and, if you are like us, the characters will stay with you long after you put it down. 

What They Say: “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” — The Irish Times 

Available on, Waterstones and Barnes & Noble
