Named Book of the Month Club's Book of the Year, 2017 Selected one of New York Times Readers' Favorite Books of 2017 Winner of the 2018 Goldsboro Books Glass Bell Award  From the beloved New York Times bestselling author of The Boy In the Striped Pajamas, a sweeping, heartfelt saga about the course of one man's life, beginning and ending in post-war Ireland Cyril Avery is not a real Avery -- or at least, that's what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn't a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead. At the mercy of fortune and coincidence, he will spend a lifetime coming to know himself and where he came from - and over his many years, will struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country, and much more. In this, 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.… (més)

Comment: The atmosphere in The Absolutist was right up my alley so I embarked on this with expectations. Beautifully written but I didn't get more than about a 1/4 of the way through the audiobook. Impatience. I wasn't in the right place for an epic, which is what I sensed it would be. ( )

Beautiful novel that did make me both laugh & cry. Born in the 1940’s Cyril navigates his homosexuality in a judgemental, priest-bound Ireland, a more tolerant Amsterdam, and a New York stricken by AIDS, before returning to his homeland, making amends & discovering the love of family - whatever that might be.

Great cast of buoyant characters, including the sometimes cowardly & weak central figure.

This book pulled me in slowly, to reveal the bigotry & cruel judgements of the latter-half of the 20th century alongside life-affirming kindness and the power of forgiveness. ( )

You know when a book gets lots of positive noises from critics and lots of great reviews and even wins an award or two and so when you pick it up, you're all stoked up for it to be wonderful, so even though it's pretty good, it's a bit of a let-down too? Well, this isn't like that. It deserves every accolade.

It got off to a good start for me with its dedication to John Irving. The story itself is excellent: thorough, detailed and, although it's fiction, realistic. It's skilfully written, with many bits of excellent dialogue between beautifully-crafted characters. It perfectly captures the wit of Ireland and also ruthlessly highlights its bigotries and narrow-mindedness. There's a fair bit of dropping of real-life names, but done so perfectly and precisely that it never feels wrong - in fact it usually left me grinning. In fact this book made me laugh out loud, made me catch my breath, and even made me weep (I must be going soft in my old age - it's the second book this year to make me cry).

A masterpiece. Read it. ( )

I thought this book, which followed the life of Irish-born Cyril from before his birth into his 70s, was absolutely incredible. Full of larger-than-life characters, this book illustrates an important time in recent history and highlights the intolerance towards gay men, and young unmarried mothers, and what has changed - and not changed - over the years.

This is at times a hard book to read but the characters are so well portrayed and the book is injected with humour throughout. Despite the length of this novel, it is really readable and I got through it in a matter of days.

My only minor negative: I found the cameos of various famous people really off-putting and weird, and don't think the name-dropping added anything to the story. There are also quite a few coincidences in the novel but I didn't mind this- and in fact I liked that his mum was always unknowingly there for him.

A fantastic read and a definite five stars. Recommended to anyone who enjoys character-led novels. ( )

*** : Dans l'Irlande ds années 20, otage d'une église hypocrite et peu charitable, Cyril enfant adopté tente de se construire. La première partie est éblouissante, loufoque, pleine d'humour malgré l'horreur de certaines scènes. La deuxième partie ne tient malheursement pas les promesses de la première. On bascule dans une histoire aux rebondissements plus ou moins crédibles. Reste un livre qui se lit avec plaisir et renoue avec l'art de raconter des histoires.

The Heart’s Invisible Furies, Boyne’s tiende roman voor volwassenen, vertelt ook een verhaal dat nooit gebeurd zou kunnen zijn, daarvoor hangt het te veel van toevalligheden aan elkaar. Toch blijf je bereid je ongeloof op te schorten, omdat je wilt weten hoe het verder gaat. Hoe de hoofdpersoon zich nu weer gaat redden uit de moeilijke situatie waarin hij, meestal door zijn eigen domme gedrag of dat van iemand anders, is terechtgekomen. En of hij zijn echte moeder ooit gaat vinden.
Dat Boyne de puzzelstukjes veel te mooi in elkaar laat vallen, vergeef je hem. Hij trakteert ons op zoveel spannende scènes, op grappige dialogen met mooie Iers-Engelse uitdrukkingen erin, en zelfs op ontroering. Bovendien is The Heart’s Invisible Furies, net als The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, duidelijk een bedacht verhaal, bedoeld om de wel waargebeurde geschiedenis te illustreren. Dat is Boyne dit keer heel goed gelukt.
 
John Boyne delivers an epic full of verve, humour and heart...This blending of fact and fiction recalls William Boyd’s masterly Any Human Heart, which was such a convincing fictionalised biography that it came with its own set of footnotes....At every stage, Boyne seems to be saying that the individual is more powerful than the institutional. And 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 Heart’s Invisible Furies” is a big, sweeping novel, the epic story of one man’s life. It takes on social issues and pivotal moments in Irish history as it follows the life of one Cyril Avery, a Pip-like orphan raised by indifferent adoptive parents and forced to make his own way in a very difficult world.

Cyril, who narrates the book, is wry, observant and funny, and it is his voice that gets us through what are sometimes horrific events. ...Despite these missteps, the book never really flags, and Cyril’s intelligent, witty voice takes us all the way through to the end of his life. “The Heart’s Invisible Furies” is a brilliant, moving history of an Irishman, and of modern Ireland itself.
 
Catherine’s journey to Dublin is the beginning of a picaresque, lolloping odyssey for the individual characters and for the nation that confines them. ...Boyne’s sombre 2014 novel A History of Loneliness anatomised such corruption and abuse, and he returns to track these seismic changes in Irish society with a broader, bawdier and more comedic sweep of narrative in The Heart’s Invisible Furies....The book blazes with anger as it commemorates lives wrecked by social contempt and self‑loathing....The narrative energy flags somewhat as Cyril’s story approaches the present day. Boyne’s fictional portrait of postwar Ireland and its people is nightmarish but utterly compelling
 
The book deals with some serious subject matter – gay-bashing, political corruption, AIDS – as well as the brutal sadness of being an other in a society that does not tolerate or even acknowledge others. But too often, Boyne goes for laughs to the detriment of the narrative. Some of the passages – the dialogue in particular – are indeed funny, but by sacrificing authenticity for a cheap laugh, he does a disservice to his story...My other beef with this book, which I tried so desperately to like, is the virtual disappearance of Kitty. While she does pop up at points in the book, it is never as a fully realized character....The novel's most successful moments come when Boyne scraps the comedy shtick and paints a more realistic picture of tender connections and difficult circumstances. This could have been a smart, raging satire of Ireland, as that tremendous opening sentence promised

" Am I alone in thinking that the world becomes a more repulsive place every day?" asked Marigold, glancing across the breakfast table toward her husband , Christopher. " Actually," he replied, "I find that ---" "The question was rhetorical ,"said Marigold, lighting a cigarette, her sixth of the day. " Please don't embarrass yourself by offering an opinion."

Long before we discovered that he had fathered two children by two different women, one in Drimoleague and in Clonakilty, Father James Munroe stood on the alter of the Church of Our Lady, Star of the Sea, in the parish of Goleen, West Cork, and denounced my mother as a whore.
