The Heart PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Heart free pdf Just before dawn on a Sunday morning, three teenage boys go surfing. Returning home, exhausted, the driver lets the car drift off the road into a tree. Two of the boys are wearing seat belts- one is sent through the windshield. He is declared brain-dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. His heart is still beating."The Heart" takes place over the twenty-four hours surrounding a fatal accident and a resulting heart transplant as life is taken from a young man and given to a woman close to death. In gorgeous, ruminative prose it examines the deepest feelings of everyone involved--grieving parents, hardworking doctors and nurses--as they navigate decisions of life and death. As stylistically audacious as it is emotionally explosive, Maylis de Kerangal's "The Heart" has mesmerized readers in France, where it has been hailed as the breakthrough work of a new literary star.
