3331 : Reading List 2021 : #5 My Heart by Semezdin Mehmoodinovic

Easily one of the finest books I have read in my life. A book I might visit again and again and again. Such a humbling book. Such an endearing book.

It's about an author and how he confronts his own health challenges - and his wife's dementia. And his honest (and such an adorable) relationship with his son. And all of this against the backdrop of him being a Bosnian refugee.

If I could, (and I will) gift this book to many of my friends. Read and be totally awed. If there was a way I would fall for an author, it has to be a book like this.

As I always say, on a scale of 10 - this book is 18 :-)

At 225 pages brings my 2021 total to 1107 pages.

This book made me hugely introspective. I cannot but look inwards and see the grime of my own multitudes....and yet realize, this is all I have. This is I shall ever be. Me.
