ABOUT
THE BOOK

Cold Eye of Heaven: the stunning new novel from Christine Dwyer Hickey, bestselling author of Last Train to Liguria.

Farley is dying and we are by his side. As his mind begins to move back over his 75 years, Farley takes us into his past and with the comic wit of a true Dubliner unravels his life – its loves, its losses and its betrayals – right in front of our eyes.

‘This stunning novel has as its core the pulsing heart of love that drives the circulation of every being… Extraordinary’ Independent on Sunday.
