Manuel Puig's Unrecognized Masterpiece 30 Jan 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
The tale of "Heartbreak Tango" is a captivating web spun out of the spider-threads of the inhabitants' lives in a small Argentinian town.
Touching, humerous, and filled with the sadness of human emotional attachments, Puig has created a magnificent look into the life of a veritable "Don Juan." An extremely good read!

Poetic mystery set in Argentina 9 Jan 2007
By enid blyton - Published on
Format: Paperback
Lovely evocation of Puig's affinity/facination with noir and Hollywood from the 30's and 40's. The book is a kind of mystery as well as a depiction of class in Argentina from the 40's to the 60's. A lot is asked of the reader. Because the novel unfolds through journal and diary entries, letters, police and hospital reports, church confessions, etc, the reader must synthesize the material as well as deciding where the truth lies amongst the various perspectives. For me, as a non-native speaker of Spanish, the book was somewhat challenging to read because of the ambiguities inherent to the style as well as some of the vocabulary but well worth it. Beautiful depictions of characters as well as reflections on human motivation. An extremely satisfying and touching work.
Variados estilos disfrutables 18 Sep 2013
By Maritza Buendía Restrepo - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Disfruté mucho el estilo en que fue escrito. La variedad de estilos en que se presenta el texto hace su lectura muy interesante. A pesar de las vidas superficiales de los personajes se aprecia su humanidad y se les llega a perdonar sus mezquindades debido al entorno y a las pocas oportunidades que tienen a su alcance.
