Book Club Day: The Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philipp Sendker

Art of Hearing Heartbeats by Jan-Philip Sendker

From Left to Write book club members took an armchair trip to Burma (now known as Myanmar) thanks to Jan-Philipp Sendker’s novel,  The Art of Hearing Heartbeats.  Against the wishes of her mother, Julia drops everything and travels to Burma to look for her missing father, a prominent lawyer.

She discovers more than she bargains for on her journey, just as our book club members did when they read  The Art of Hearing Heartbeats.

Has reading all those stories given you wanderlust? Pull up a chair and read a beautiful love story between a blind boy and club-footed girl-all while traveling to Asia. Grab your copy of The Art of Hearing Heartbeats (Other Press). Follow the Jan-Philipp Sendker’s site for some beautiful photos of Burma and its people.
