Yet, in Jan-Philipp Sendker's astonishing new novel, set against the seamy backdrop of modern day china, he melds the two to create something so original, thrilling and moving about the things we want, and what we are prepared to do to get them.

Jan-Philipp’s Recent Updates

“I have often wondered what was the source of her beauty, her radiance. It’s not the size of one’s nose, the color of one’s skin, the shape of one’s lips or eyes that make one beautiful or ugly. So what is it? Can you, as a woman, tell me?
I shook my head.
I will tell you: It’s love. Love makes us beautiful. Do you know a single person who loves and is loved, who is loved unconditionally and who, at the same time, is ugly? There’s no need to ponder the question. There is no such person.”
Jan-Philipp Sendker, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats

“Life is a gift full of riddles in which suffering and happiness are inextricably intertwined. Any attempt to have one without the other was simply bound to fail.”
Jan-Philipp Sendker, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats

“And so there must be in life something like a catastrophic turning point, when the world as we know ceases to exist. A moment that transform us into a different person from one heartbeat to the next.”
Jan-Philipp Sendker, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats
