About the Author:

John Boyne was born in Ireland in 1971. He is the author of ten novels for adults, five for young readers and a collection of short stories. Perhaps best known for his 2006 multi-award-winning book The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas, John's other novels, notably The Absolutist and A History of Loneliness, have been widely praised and are international bestsellers. In 2015, John chaired the panel for the Giller Prize, Canada's most prestigious literary award. The Heart's Invisible Furies is his most ambitious novel yet.

Review:

"The best of the best ... These revealing stories, unfolding like intimate confessions, will twist your heart." Daily Mail "Boyne offers writing of insight and beauty that elevates this collection to impressive heights indeed, and confirms him as one of Ireland's finest contemporary writers" Observer "Boyne has achieved a careful authenticity ... Beneath the Earth is a satisfying and polished set of short stories with definite longevity and immense global appeal." Irish Independent "[Beneath the Earth] tracks the light and dark of Ireland's past and present ... Boyne is particularly strong on dramatising child and teen sensibilities but here we see how the badness of adults spills over and infects these damaged children." Independent
