Bending Over Backwards - Book launch event by the author Carlo Pizzati

A Journey to the End of the World to Cure a Chronic Backache

Italian Embassy Cultural Centre in Mumbai in association with the author Carlo Pizzati present the book launch of Bending Over Backwards at Title Waves Bookstore in Bandra.

In this intrepid and humorous travelogue, Carlo Pizzati embarks on a quest to find a cure for a backache that has tortured him for decades. Armed with his notebook and an indomitable spirit of adventure, Carlo travels from a posturologist s office in northern Italy to the rarefied mountain air of Boulder; from a trance-dance venue hidden near the woods of Cinque Terre to an exorcist-shaman s den near Buenos Aires. Eventually, he fetches up at an Ashtanga yoga centre in Mysore. In India, as Carlo engages in strenuous yogic discipline, he has an explosive insight into his past births which changes his life forever.
