Summary
A grandiose old shoemaker tells his story to a circle of young women basking in the sun, a tale of amorous conquests and drunken misadventures, in a novella by Czechoslovakia's preeminent storyteller.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
An old man, a shoemaker who once wore a pince-nez and carried a stick with a silver mounting because he wanted to look like a composer, tells the story of his life to six youn, beautiful women basking in the sun. One drunken thought triggers another. Amorous conquests alternate with sundry mishaps and in the exuberant telling acquire the same weight and substance as earth-shattering events. To say nothing of the historical perspective, which the self-styled "engineer of human feet" bends at random to suit his mood. Dancing Lessons for the Advanced in Age displays the inimitable Czech master at his playful best.
