In the mood of Sally Rooney’s Conversations with Friends.
In the mood of Sally Rooney’s Conversations with Friends. A wild, almost sentimental novel about the things that kill us and the people who keep us alive. After waking up from disturbing dreams, one morning Andrea discovers his heart is missing. He’s definitely not dead, but is he really alive? He’s merely fading away under the distracted gaze of the women around him, for whom nothing seems to be amiss. Muscles and bones aren’t the only things keeping us alive. We are also the product of our relationships with others. Could Andrea be unable to die because he is unable to live?
