Twelve Minutes of Love

A Tango Story

From a writer who is as dazzling on the dance-floor as she is on the page, here is the hidden story of tango: the world's most passionate dance.

Zitat
In prose as elegant and seductive as the tango itself, Kapka Kassabova leads us on a journey over time and across continents, above all a journey of the heart. - Aminatta Forna This is more than a book about dancing.
