From the author of The Heart’s Invisible Furies and in the wake of a hugely successful hardback publication, The Echo Chamber is ‘uproariously funny. The world has never needed satire more urgently and Boyne delivers in spades.’ (The Sunday Times)

To err is maybe to be human but to really foul things up you only need a phone.

What a thing of wonder a mobile phone is. Six ounces of metal, glass and plastic, fashioned into a sleek, shiny, precious object. At once, a gateway to other worlds – and a treacherous weapon in the hands of the unwary, the unwitting, the inept.

The Cleverley family seem to have it all. But one social media app, some questionable opinions and a tortoise will soon bring their world tumbling down.They live a gilded life, little realising how precarious their privilege is, just one tweet away from disaster.

Together they will go on a journey of discovery through the Hogarthian jungle of modern living where past presumptions count for nothing and carefully curated reputations can be destroyed in an instant. Along the way they will learn how volatile, how outraged, how unforgiving the world can be when you step from the proscribed path.
