Judging on somebody's personal experience is not reviewing the work of that person.
To review a book, one must have a working understanding of the subject matter, the time and the circumstances.

Anybody familiar with the multiple layers of the tango world in Buenos Aires might understand that many dimensions coexist in the same temporal space without ever intersecting or even come close to share the same circumstances. Thus, the author's confessional style of writing describes her experience among a particular group of left wing militants who happen to make a living teaching tango far away from the mainstream. Add to that the fact that the author carries the deep scar of a sexual abuse perpetrated upon her at an earlier age, and her take on what she experiences in her tango journey is definitely tinted by feelings that most people can't relate to.

The book reveals the experience of a group of people connected with each other at a certain moment in time by their acquaintance with the author. Her purpose is fulfilled as she expresses her experiences in an entertaining narrative. To see more than that, to try to patch a history of tango in any way, shape or form, to extrapolate one person's life tribulations into inspirational mantra for anybody embarking on his or her own journey or to consider this book as anything else as the personal experience of the author, would be mistaking substance with symbolism because tango is a very personal matter which should not be used as a prop but as one's own way of life.
HASH(0x99255900) étoiles sur 5 Tangled Tangos 25 octobre 2014
Par Mt. - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Paper Tangos is an odd book. I'd give it 2 and a half stars. It's supposed to be a ballet dancer/
anthropologist giving us her unique perspective on Tango on paper. An ambitious sounding goal and one which often
falls short. As someone who is a social dancer and having taken a few classes with
native Argentines, I was disappointed there was so little information about the form/structure of the body during the dance. As much experience as the author has had with Tango, it's clear she hasn't done much other social dancing.
She describes how women dancers frequently talk to each other and point out leaders who
are difficult to dance with, who rudely 'correct' woman dancers. This type of thing happens with both men and women
at social dances often, it's not unique to tango.
In my opinion what sets Tango apart from other dances is it's essential requirement for the dancer(s) to be
physically and mentally present. Since unlike other dances where there is an emphasis on steps/routines/patterns,
Tango's foundation rests upon improvisation. So to seriously study tango entails a close to "spiritual" presence.
Because it also requires intense balance and partnering skills, learning tango can easily enhance any other
social dancing skills.
It was also hard to follow the stilted style in which the book is written. Convoluted sentences which are difficult to
understand even upon rereading. Poor grammmar..."They were disappeared."
If you've been to Argentina and want to know more about the political violence there, it's history and effect on
many people, this might be worth a read. I'd recommend, if possible, to read a few pages, before buying this one.
If you want to learn more about tango, check videos on line, or watch Tango a film by Carlos Saura or Assassination Tango(at the end of the film and in the extras, there is some fine
dancing.) Both films are worth watching for the dancing, the plots, no so much.

HASH(0x9899c828) étoiles sur 5 Tango Fishing? 11 novembre 2005
Par Sherry Machen - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Did the reviewer and I read the same book, see the same flipbook inside? Thanks to him (and I'm sure he's a him), this book isn't out of print, which I think it soon will be, as the Argentine tango becomes more and more popular, for many of the reasons Taylor describes. It's a dance for the times, and the times require presence and balance, if there are to be any more times. I thought it was a lovely book, that I will reread, as complicated and as poetic as the tango I am only just beginning to learn. I'll bet he hasn't been trout-fishing either, a close relative -- two disciplines of mind and body that require deep attention and grace.

HASH(0x991b4a2c) étoiles sur 5 An odd little book 3 novembre 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
An odd little book about a former ballet dancer dancing tango in Buenos Aires. The author describes herself as blonde and beautiful. She marries and divorces an Argentine man, but it's all in the background of her consuming tango obsession. With disjoint time and amost hallucinatory digressions into the emotions brought to the surface by tango, this reads a bit like "Trout Fishing in America" if it were tango instead of trout. There is a flip book built into the pages where a tango turns first into a violent attack and then into sheets of falling paper. This low-tech animation wordlessly caputures the themes in the text.

HASH(0x98d1a150) étoiles sur 5 diary of a teenage girl 24 mai 2008

This is like a diary of a teenage girl. Very personal and very shallow. In this book you will find a lot of nothing about tango. Waste of time.
