Imperfect Heart: A Journal, a Book Club, and a Global Pandemic
Imperfect Heart is Toni Fuhrman’s personal chronicle of the 2020-2021 Covid-19 pandemic and the political chaos that our nation experienced in lockstep with the health crisis.
Along with Toni’s personal reflections during that memorable period, Imperfect Heart takes the reader on a month-to-month journey with a fictional book club. The book club consists of four friends who meet on Zoom to talk about books, the pandemic, their personal lives, and whatever political crisis is in the news.
Experimental in format, familiar in its elements and yet unconventional in its juxtaposing of those elements, Imperfect Heart follows an unprecedented time in our nation’s history — a time that has touched everyone — and a time that we cannot afford to forget.
