Book Club Dicussion: A Well-Tempered Heart

A Well Tempered Heart by Jan-Philipp Sendker

With the recent polar winds that froze most of the United States last month, I was glad to travel to tropical Burma as our book club read  A Well-Tempered Heart by Jan-Philipp Sendker (Other Press). From Left to Write members read Sendker’s previous novel The Art of Hearing Heartbeats in 2012 and we were happy to revisit Julia and her brother U Ba again. On a whim, Julia quits her job at a law firm to visit  her brother in Burma and discover the story that the voice in her head is trying to tell her.

See what personal stories A Well-Tempered Heart inspired our book club members to share with you:
