About the Book

'Fists', '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.
Told in a spare and powerful voice reminiscent of Hemingway and Salinger, Grossi's stories explore the rite of passage each of us faces in our youth - and what it means to be a man in our time.
