Things That Make the Heart Beat Faster, Hardback Book

Things That Make the Heart Beat Faster Hardback


Joao Morais's contemporary debut collection of stories beats paths through a capital city from street food markets and art galleries to the park and the pub.

From illegal raves to prison visits, Morais turns his unflinching beam on the quickened pulse of urban living: spliffs, fights, and hearts spark as relationships and power struggles are tested.

Often comic, sometimes tragic, these stories detail the moments in their characters' lives when everything changes and their hearts beat faster.
