To know the city of Buenos Aires, and to understand the people who live there, this is the book to read. Tourists will have a guidebook, a history book, and a sociological map of the city. Expats will read this book and awaken, as in an epiphany, and say, “This is what I always knew but could not articulate.” Porteños (Buenos Aires city residents) will read this book and see themselves like looking in their mirrors in …
