"Semezdin Memedinović charts the collapse of a world with heartbreaking clarity and precision . . . conveys the same clear-eyed passion for the truth that one finds in the young Hemingway, the Hemingway of our time." --Paul Auster "Readers will discover that Mehmedinovoic's powerfully affecting and honest tale of the dizzy perimeter of mortality is also the oldest and best kind of story: one of love." --Rivka Galchen, author of Atmospheric Disturbances and American Innovations "One of the most endearingly ruminative, sweetly sorrowful short novels I have ever encountered. A quietly devastating portrait of grief and loss, the soul-ache of exile, and the sustaining power of familial love, My Heart broke mine." --Dan Sheehan, author of Restless Souls
