Each day before work María Dolz stops at the same café. There she finds herself drawn to a couple who is also there every morning. Observing their seemingly perfect life helps her escape the listlessness of her own. But when the man is brutally murdered and María approaches the widow to offer her condolences, what began as mere observation turns into an increasingly complicated entanglement. Invited into the widow’s home, she meets--and falls in love with--a man who sheds disturbing new light on the crime. As María recounts this story, we are given a murder mystery brilliantly encased in a metaphysical enquiry, a novel that grapples with questions of love and death, chance and coincidence, and above all, with the slippery essence of the truth and how it is told.

My Heart Hemmed in Cover Image

Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Two Lines Press - July 11th, 2017

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 4 -- 7PM

MY HEART HEMMED IN is extraordinary: an original and suspenseful novel that exposes all that is monstrous and ugly in the way that we regard those around us -- our tendency to harbor suspicions, judgments and prejudices against people we do not want or even try, to understand. Ndiaye takes us inside the disturbing mind of Nadia, her unforgettable protagonist, with writing that is arresting; the tension, immediately palpable, builds steadily. The temptation to turn the pages quickly is great but the prose is so fine that you will want to savor it. With its unsettling atmosphere reminiscent of Doris Lessing’s THE FIFTH CHILD, Ndiaye’s brilliant novel obtains pride of place with the very best literary horror. MY HEART HEMMED IN is a morality tale for our times.

Our September book club pick is Tiffany McDaniel’s THE SUMMER THAT MELTED EVERYTHING, a novel set in small-town Ohio during the sizzling hot summer of 1984. When a successful prosecuting attorney begins to believe that neither his profession nor his religious faith will bring justice to victims of evil, he places an ad in the local newspaper inviting the devil to town. Soon a self-proclaimed devil does appear in the form of a young, poor black boy whose very presence exposes citizens’ deepest fears, disrupting the town’s bucolic tranquility. THE SUMMER THAT MELTED EVERYTHING is a gothic treasure, so original and masterfully written that you will wish that the long, hot summer would never end.
