Every life is both ordinary and extraordinary, but Logan Mountstuart's - lived from the beginning to the end of the twentieth century - contains more than its fair share of both.

As a writer who finds inspiration with Hemingway in Paris and Virginia Woolf in London, as a spy recruited by Ian Fleming and betrayed in the war and as an art-dealer in '60s New York, Logan mixes with the movers and shakers of his times. But as a son, friend, lover and husband, he makes the same mistakes we all do in our search for happiness.

Any Human Heart by William Boyd is the story of a life lived to the full - and a journey deep into a very human heart.

William Boyd's television adaptation of Any Human Heart for Channel 4 was broadcast in 2010. Starring Jim Broadbent and Matthew Macfadyen, the series went on to win the 2011 BAFTA for best Drama Serial.
