Incredible Stories from Argentine History

Daniel Balmaceda

NON FICTION. SUDAMERICANA, 2009. 288 PAGES.

Argentine history is full of incredible characters and situations and who better than Daniel Balmaceda to dig up and share these amazing tales in his warm, rigorous prose? San Martín is declared dead four years early. Avellaneda goes out onto the balcony of the presidential palace to greet the crowd and is applauded as though he were Perón. Luis Viale writes his glorious chapter during an absurd shipwreck. A president's mother forces him to marry a woman he doesn't love. A minister appears to have died in very compromising circumstances and a businessman changes his will from beyond the grave.

As the author says: "Many of the tales in Incredible Stories... seem better suited to fiction. However, all of them really happened and any similarity with real people or events is no coincidence at all."
