2 Cents Critic Podcast – The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang

Tune in for Arthur’s thoughts on The Heart Principle by Helen Hoang. Her third #ownvoices contemporary romance stars Anna Sun, a violinist who seeks out a one-night stand after her boyfriend Julian announces that they should try an open relationship before making plans to tie the knot, and Quan Diep, the tattooed and motorcycle-riding cousin of Michael Larsen from the author’s debut novel The Kiss Quotient. Initially, Quan seems to fit the bill for a one-night stand, but maybe he’s actually qualified for much more…? This episode also includes topics like advocation for better disability representation in media, a recitation of a Frasier scene that showcases the eponymous radio psychiatrist in all his control-freak glory, and the numerous striking similarities between The Heart Principle and The Kiss Quotient—including the fact that Quan, like Michael, is always in Cinnamon Roll Mode.
