Présentation de l'éditeur

Maria Finn's husband was cheating. First she threw him out. Then she cried. Then she signed up for tango lessons. It turns out that tango has a lot to teach about understanding love and loss, about learning how to follow and how to lead, how to live with style and flair, take risks, and sort out what it is you really want. As Maria's world begins to revolve around the friendships she makes in dance class and the milongas (social dances) she attends regularly in New York City, we discover with her the fascinating culture, history, music, moves, and beauty of the Argentine tango. With each new dance step she learns—the embrace, the walk, the sweep, the exit—she is one step closer to returning to the world of the living. Eventually Maria travels to Buenos Aires, the birthplace of tango, and finds the confidence to try romance again. 

As exhilarating as the dance itself, the story whirls us into the center of the ballroom dancing craze. And buoyed by the author's humor and passion, it imparts surprising insights about how to get on with life after you've lost in love.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Soul Satisfying Page Turner 7 mai 2010
Par Hayley Kathleen Downs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I read this book and LOVED IT. I sent a copy to my sister and she immediately sent another copy to her best friend. I'm sure
it went on from there. I'm not a tango dancer but the story of the author's heartbreak the challenge of moving on is universal and we all have
a lot to learn from her travels. It reminded me that all personal tragedies are opportunities for growth and change.
Maria Finn obviously takes this very much to heart and I found myself almost immediately cheering her on. As a protagonist, she's
hard to resist. I absolutely marvel that, after splitting up with her husband, she would take up tango -- a technical and punishing
dance form to master after such a devastating ego blow. She seemed to draw faith that she would triumph from some deep well even she didn't know she had. The book is a
page turner -- and I laughed out loud many times. I recommend it HIGHLY -- not just for dance lovers -- but for anyone
who has ever had their heartbroken and found the courage to put it back together again.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Tango and Zen an intriguing conversation 27 avril 2013
Par V. Markowski - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book about the author's emotional healing through a combination of tango and Zen was intriguing. Although one might think the two were not at all similar, the intensity of immersion in both is the same.

My biggest challenge with the book was with the cavalier way the author described how all the men at the milongas thought of her as a dancing goddess, of how she could eat whatever she wanted without gaining an ounce, of how she was able to just pick up and move to Buenos Aires for a year with no financial worries. I would have felt more empathy for the author if she had expressed any negative feelings at all about anything except herself.

Discussed this in a book group, though, where people who were more familiar with Zen felt this was an uplifting and inspiring book. They would have given it 5 stars.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Well Written, yet Uninspiring 3 novembre 2010
Par Utah Mom - Publié sur Amazon.com
I don't usually read memoirs and I can't dance so I really wasn't sure what to expect. I was actually pleasantly surprised by its readability. The writing is fresh and I was intrigued by the details and history of Tango.

However, it is essentially a book about man's, or rather woman's, search for happiness and I'm afraid it falls short. It is, yet again, a book about the pathetic 30-something, narcissistic generation. Uninspiring.
1.0 étoiles sur 5 In books like Ms Finn's I look for some enlightenment - some ... 18 juillet 2015
Par Mary T ORourke - Publié sur Amazon.com
So we all have our own way of getting thru tough times. I've just been thru breast cancer so I know a thing or two about human frailty and misery. In books like Ms Finn's I look for some enlightenment - some kernel of wisdom. Her way is not my way. So please everyone - don't critize the criticism. The tango is a very intimate thing. If I had been betrayed in an intimate relationship I would not go there. Talk about leaping from the frying into the fire. If I needed male companionship or point of view I would look to a male friend. I would definitely not encourage or seek out romantic relationships until I was in a more stable place. And I found too many references to her husband - like "I can't believe he did this to me!" What surprize - that in the history of humankind no one has ever been betrayed by a spouse or partner before!! That may be a little harsh but I was hoping for some insight and I didn't find much. I probably won't finish the book.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Tango life in New York 12 décembre 2010
Par Tanguera_bird - Publié sur Amazon.com
I read two books in a row about tango. First was "Argentinian Tango. Love Story", which has lots of reviews. Next one was "Hold me tight and tango me home", and I would say that I expected way more than I found. Unlike "Argentinian Tango...", this book shows the New York tango scene; even some tango teachers are very recognisable. Yet it made this book interesting for my taste. There is a dynamic but it's all about same. Might be a bad idea to read two books in a row about tango. This one shows same as a previous one: tango as a life style. Tango as a cure for broken heart. This dance has a strong "personality". Once you are attached, it became your second (even your first) skin. Same happened to Maria Finn. While trying to get over her divorce, she started to dance. Later, she will find herself being attached to tango, to learning, to practicing, to chosing tango outfit, you name it.
