Heartbreak Tango

Manuel Puig

NOVEL. EDITORIAL SUDAMERICANA, 1969. 256 PAGES.

This text takes us back into Argentine history, the sordid underworld of romantic novels seen with unflinching objectivity through a parody of journalistic language, ferociously impassive descriptions and the exasperating triviality of impersonal lives.
 
Several decades later, Nené still has the letters from his former lover Juan Carlos, even though he is now married. Don Juan Carlos, who died from tuberculosis in a sanatorium, reconstructs the private lives of resentful and innocent beings; a love affair in nineteen-thirties Argentina.
