Book Review: The Art of Hearing Heartbeats

Very poetic and steeped in the likelihood of living, loving and becoming in Kalaw and Rangoon. I had some qualms, though, with the switchback storytelling of U Ba that played out more as story than recall or hearsay. How would he have known some of the things told within those chapters? It bothered me. That said, the story is rich and dreamy, thought-provoking and kind. It leaves me feeling peaceful.
