From the Booker shortlisted author of Dirt Music and Cloudstreet, Eyrie is a heart-stoppingly moving novel for our times. Tom Keely has lost his bearings. His reputation in ruins, he finds himself holed up in a flat at the top of a grim high-rise, looking down on the world he's fallen out of love with.

He has cut himself off and intends to keep it that way, until one day he runs into some neighbors-a woman from his past and her introverted young boy. The encounter shakes him up in a way he doesn't understand and despite himself, Keely lets them in.

But the pair come trailing a dangerous past of their own and Keely is soon immersed in a world that threatens to destroy everything he has learnt to love.

Eyrie is a heart-stopping novel written with breath-taking tenderness. Funny, confronting, exhilarating and haunting, it asks how, in an impossibly compromised world, we can ever hope to do the right thing.
