In his latest novel, John Boyne's most transcendent work to date, we are shown the story of Ireland from the 1940s to today through the eyes of one ordinary man. The Heart's Invisible Furies is a novel to make you laugh and cry while reminding us all of the redemptive power of the human spirit. John Boyne has published nine novels for adults and ve for younger readers, including The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas which has sold more than 6 million copies worldwide and was made into a Miramax feature lm.

Chris Cleave's debut novel Incendiary won the Somerset Maugham Award, among others. His second, the Costa-shortlisted The Other Hand, was a global bestseller and sat in the New York Times Top Ten for over a year (under the US title, Little Bee). Both books were shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers' Prizes. His third book, Gold, con rmed his status as 'one of our most powerful, important and psychologically insightful novelists'. Everyone Brave is Forgiven became an instant bestseller in 2016.
