On being human,
This review is from: The Course of the Heart (Hardcover)
MJH's Course of the Heart is my most battered book: read & re-read over 10 years; knocked about; pages torn, folded as markers and yellowed by time on 3 different bookcases. What draws me back each time goes right up to the place where words run out. The tale weaves reality & magic; humanity & sub-humanity; rawness & subtlety into a short, technicolour & congruent whole. It tells you about being human; it tells you about place; it tells you how humans behave in the places where they hide, sin, heal, grieve, and risk it all. Between bleached pages you'll find yourself and your most real, darkest thoughts.
