Love and Gymnastics by Edmondo De Amicis
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Mr Celzani finds himself consumingly in love with an Amazonian gymnast with whom he shares an apartment block. The machinations of their fellow inhabitants notwithstanding, he finds his romantic efforts repeatedly thwarted by his beloved's single-minded focus on her rigorous physical discipline. Through the intertwining of his dual themes, de Amicis proposes a timeless meditation on the necessity of both balance and principle.
