Abstract:

Eyrie tells the story of Tom Keely, a man who?s lost his bearings in middle age and is now holed up in a flat at the top of a grim highrise, looking down on the world he?s fallen out of love with. He?s cut himself off, until one day he runs into some neighbours: a woman he used to know when they were kids, and her introverted young boy. The encounter shakes him up in a way that he doesn?t understand. Despite himself, Keely lets them in. What follows is a heart-stopping, groundbreaking novel for our times, funny, confronting, exhilarating and haunting, populated by unforgettable characters. It asks how, in an impossibly compromised world, we can ever hope to do the right thing.
