A wonderful evocation of Argentina - people, places, funny stories, history and not dodgy away from the horrors of history. Loved it!
A most enjoyable read. I like the format, with each section working as a standalone piece, but all of them linked by the author's purposeful itinerary. The descriptions of landscape, light and colour are vivid and evocative. The writing has real clarity, making it easy to imagine each scene described. I will remember the smouldering bootlaces for a long time!
This interesting and entertaining book made me want to book a flight to Argentina immediately (which unfortunately isn't possible) so for now I will have to be satisfied with these excellent stories that make it feel like you are there. And I hope that I do get there eventually....
