    Heartbreak Tango Manuel Puig 11 11 12 Elevated now to classic status, the book is an indispensable source of inspiration to me The novel s form is like no other it s an exhilarating experiment done exactly right Cannot be recommended by me enough times READ IT This was my previous review 11 18 11 Manuel Puig I immediately place him above Garcia Marquez and Bola o No, really He insists on writing love stories in the least possibly direct way, which is certainly a gust of fresh air to a Heartbreak Tango Manuel Puig 11 11 12 Elevated now to classic status, the book is an indispensable source of inspiration to me The novel s form is like no other it s an exhilarating experiment done exactly right Cannot be recommended by me enough times READ IT This was my previous review 11 18 11 Manuel Puig I immediately place him above Garcia Marquez and Bola o No, really He insists on writing love stories in the least possibly direct way, which is certainly a gust of fresh air to all of modern lit Through the use of love letters, one sided conversations, seemingly useless lists, mere brush stroke observations of now vintage minutiae, conversations with parenteticals attached what the characters are REALLY thinking , church confessions, police reports, news items with everything unconventional and radiant and truly intelligent the man understands how to evade the syrup of romance while still retaining it in a drastically different form encapsulated within objects of the everyday crystallized there FOR ALL TIME I LOVE this book almost as much as his Spider Woman, it having similar themes poetics non linearity, off stage violence and romance, good people acting badly and, inversely, bad people doing good and giving the reader an experience that s a truly genuine one One simply cannot ask forOf course it was added to the 1001 List in 2010, and this gives much cause to rejoice lost treasure has undoubtedly been re found The romance is palpable, incredible, and the sadness of the piece will stay with you long after far longer than any of Hollywood s fake and gilded turds If any of the Latin American writers deserve your priceless reading time and attention, it is my intuition as a romantic lover of all lit to say that it is most definitely Puig

    By far my favorite of all Puig s novels He s at his absolute best in utilizing a variety of voices and forms letters real and forged, phone conversations, death notices, prayers, photo albums, police reports to tell the story of Juan Carlos and all the women of Vallejos he was involved with The serial structure of the novel told in sixteen episodes, like a radio drama or telenovela highlights the way in which the characters tend to interpret their lives through the lens of sentimental po By far my favorite of all Puig s novels He s at his absolute best in utilizing a variety of voices and forms letters real and forged, phone conversations, death notices, prayers, photo albums, police reports to tell the story of Juan Carlos and all the women of Vallejos he was involved with The serial structure of the novel told in sixteen episodes, like a radio drama or telenovela highlights the way in which the characters tend to interpret their lives through the lens of sentimental pop culture, such as the tango Nelida is extremely guilty of this, what with her belief in only being able to truly love one person in life, in her sexual naivete and myopia in terms of Juan Carlos s philanderingBut as Suzanne Jill Levine mentions in THE SUBVERSIVE SCRIBE, and as Francisco Goldman mentions in the intro, Puig isn t making fun of his characters for their pop culture modeled expectations and desires That s just how these people think and talk which isn t all that different from today s average wo man on the street These cliched phrases and situations help the characters see a meaning, a structure to their lives, which, to be honest, are fairly unhappy, in both domestic suffering silently in a loveless marriage and melodramatic one character murders the father of her child ways Gossip, or the threat of gossip, is evenimportant to the lives of the characters than the overwrought movie plots that infect their imaginations Everyone s afraid of what others might know or find out, something that is reflected in the way the reader is forced to piece everything together This really is a wonderful book, and I m not doing it justice in my written in five minutes reviewDefinitely going to use this in my World Literature Translation class this spring though, and hopefully that ll help me clarify my thoughtsSpeaking of not doing justice, the cover Dalkey put on this reissue SUCKS I m willing to concede that their new look is better than what was going on back some years ago, but it s awfully repetitive and boring, and when it doesn t work, it really doesn t work Neon yellow around the title Ugh Hopefully this ll sell out in the near future and they ll rethink this crappy design

    A story about middle class young people in Argentina in the 1930 s The story focuses on the romances of three women, two of whom love the same man, an ill fated Casanova who has tuberculosis We also get a glimpse of the romance and tribulations of the folks who are the maids and cooks as well, so there is a bit of Upstairs Downstairs The style of the book, written in 1969, is innovative each chapter is a bit different structured in letters, flyers and newspaper articles which reflects the A story about middle class young people in Argentina in the 1930 s The story focuses on the romances of three women, two of whom love the same man, an ill fated Casanova who has tuberculosis We also get a glimpse of the romance and tribulations of the folks who are the maids and cooks as well, so there is a bit of Upstairs Downstairs The style of the book, written in 1969, is innovative each chapter is a bit different structured in letters, flyers and newspaper articles which reflects the author s addiction to Hollywood flicks of the 1930 s and 40 s We are told in the introduction that, as a flamboyantly gay man, the author was addicted to going to the theatre with his mother from an early age and he imagined himself in the female lead roles So Puig is a bit like Argentina s Truman Capote A lively and engaging book by a movie fanatic who transposed cinematic techniques to novels Tango lyrics lead off each chapter This is Argentina, after all

    I lost count of the times I re read this I wrote my MA thesis on Puig, which should probably have put me off for life, but of all his novels this is the one I d go back to again It s nostalgic and perhaps even sentimental, but it s a beautifully written story love and loss This and El beso de la Mujer Ara a Kiss of the Spider Woman are his best work.

    too disrupted, too tired i like the first and the last part of it while everything in the middle is too messy it might be a very good book for others, but not for now me.

    This book was so fun The story of a young,ailing Don Juan and the women who love him in 40s Argentina, it s basically a telenovela told in a variety of fascinating ways, everything from correspondence to inner monologues to pure dialogue to minute by minute chronicles of a night from an invisible observer I felt like I was eavesdropping the entire time andthan once had the urge to say, oh no she didn t Excellent.
