ORIGAMI HEART is the story of Xavier Kidd, probably the most beautiful boy ever to walk the earth. After years of physical, sexual, and psychological abuse at the hands of his trick-turning, waitress mother and her heroin junky boyfriend, Xavier learns the nature of duality and with a heart as big as heaven and filled with wanderlust, he runs away from his past - hoping to embrace a bright, yet unknown future. ORIGAMI HEART is about the fictions that we create in our own minds as an escape from the pains in our lives. It is a must read for anyone who has gone through trauma, dissociated, or simply yearns to understand the darker sides of life.
