For almost a quarter of a century John Boyne’s novels have been treasured by adults and young readers alike. Whether he is exploring history in The Thief of Time, discovering humanity in the trenches in The Absolutist, revealing personal trauma in A History of Loneliness, creating dark comedy in A Ladder to the Sky, or making us laugh with the broad farce of The Echo Chamber, his work has found a global readership. And, with the modern classics, The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Heart’s Invisible Furies, he has created two of the most beloved novels of the 21st century.


He is the author of fourteen novels for adults, six for younger readers, and a collection of short stories. The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas has sold more than 11 million copies worldwide and has been adapted for cinema, theatre, ballet, and opera. He has won four Irish Book Awards, including Author of the Year in 2022, along with a host of other international literary prizes. His novels are published in fifty-nine languages

making him the most translated Irish writer of all time.
