Fernando Arrabal:  THE BODY-BUILDER'S BOOK OF LOVE (Breviario de amor de un halterófilo).
    Translated by Lorenzo Mans.  1999.

This metatheatrical tour de force for two characters, like Arrabal's world-acclaimed The Architect and the Emperor of Assyria, combines surface farce and eroticism with a philosophical discussion of spiritual aspiration, love and death.

The Body-Builder's Book of Love. INTAR, New York City, 1990. Directed by Tom O'Horgan.
