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. It is about people, places, movement, love, trouble, a journey. I was gripped...

Her narrative, bubbly and brisk as it is, will entertain fellow dancers and fans of tango music and fellow wanderers pursuing similar ends. - "TLS" This is a strangely moving book, Kassabova's sensibility running throughout the pages like a melancholy tango melody. The author is intelligent, sensitive and romantic, and colours the content with her own elegiac perspective. Nothing is under- or over-stated... Kassabova is expert at interspersing history with her personal life, the movement like the intricate dance steps of the tango. One seems to reinforce and shed light on the other [a
