Reviews - What do customers think about El Cantor De Tango / The Tango Singer (Spanish Edition)?

Complicated references, but excellent story  Oct 2, 2005
Excellent story about an American student who gets a loan to go to Buenos Aires to finish his paper about Borges and Tango singers.

It's 150 pages, not that long, but it does have a lot of references to Argentine History, People, Politics, and Literature. As well as many other worldwide literary and philosofical references.

You might want to know some (a lot) of Argentine history, specially from Perón's era to the 2002 economic collapse.

Still, it is an amazing book to read, even if you don't know much history.

A little boring at first, but it picks up the pace, and gets to the "extasis" about halfway through the book.

In some parts it also has a Witold Gombrowicz' style of analizing Argentine society.

Excellent read for Argentine's in exile, and for those who love Buenos Aires and know it's enigmatic escence. The story is complex, but the author manages to explain it a reasonable pace, and interconnects all the characters in it. Also, the connetions between history, politics, and argentine society with the story is amazing.

A must read
Quick trip to today's Buenos Aires  Sep 2, 2004
The Argentine contraddictions described through a foreign eye, by a local author.
I guess it reads better if you actually visit Buenos Aires and read some Borges.
You can go to "el Club del Vino" and enjoy some authentic Tango performance (the music, not the dance). You can sip a coffe at "la Biela", walk at "la Recoleta" and maybe pay a visit to the monumental cemetery...
And you'll probably understand the book better. Or if you can't, maybe you can surf the internet looking for guides and picture to pace yourself throughout your reading...
I read it in a weekend and it was like going back to the Capital Federal...
