I was given The Art of Hearing Heartbeats for Christmas as it had recently been translated into english. I can only say it is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. The exploration into love in its many forms was beautifully handled and the insight into Burmese culture and their understanding of life and love was simply exquisite.
