The Heart

The Heart - Maylis de Kerangal, Sam Taylor A captivating prose poem. It weaves in and out of the heads of the various characters. Some are in anguish on a day that will change their lives, some in a snapshot of an intense day at work. The plot can be summarized in a single sentence, so it is more a book of emotion than of action. Incredibly beautiful.

I got a free copy to read ahead of the English publication from Net Galley.
