My Heart is an Idiot by Davy Rothbart

My Heart is an Idiot - Davy Rothbart

Read by Kim A: A collection of essays recounting the life experiences of the author, in particular his romantic pursuits and the characters that he encounters along the way. He lives quite a bohemian lifestyle and I liked the fact that he was so open to adventure and following strange paths as they opened up to him without hesitation.  For me the best feature of this book was the warmth and compassion with which he describes the characters. He meets people from very different circumstances to his own, who would often be stereotyped or marginalized for their traits, but Davy writes about them without judgment. Not everyone’s cup of tea but I really enjoyed it.
