synopsis of the book / STORY

Love is a beautiful thing – especially one’s first love! As Brane Mozetič’s moving play shows, not everyone shares this view. When two boys seem to be falling for each other in kindergarten, it is their teacher’s opinion that things have gone far enough. She notices the boys playing at being opera divas and doing “girly” things, and separates the shy, sensitive first-person narrator from his best friend and closest companion Andrejček. When they embrace each other, she threatens them with punishment, though the boys do not know why or what they did “wrong”. Insecurity accompanies the two from this point on. The play begins with memorable scenes that capture the boys’ misery and give a sense of how destructive it is to be told one has wrong feelings.
