Buying Options

Told in a spare and powerful voice reminiscent of Hemingway and Salinger, the three stories in Pietro Grossi's Fists explore the rite of passage each of us faces in our youth and what it means to be a man in our time. 'Boxing', 'Horses' and 'The Monkey': three powerful coming-of-age stories about boys confronting reality, and fighting to stay alive in a man's world. In 'Fists', a teenage amateur boxer steps into the ring for the first time, and finds himself in a face-off with Life in all its muscular force; in 'Horses', two brothers embark on their first forays into adulthood, each learning to play a man's game in his own painful way; and in 'The Monkey', a young man realizes that in order to stay sane and survive in this world, we have to sacrifice our childhood dreams.
