The Church of Tango: a Memoir (Biographies & Memoirs)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:32PM
Description: A story of survival that cuts across death, cancer, Alzheimer's, loss of home and homeland and cherished heirlooms and possessions, loss of shared histories, of hope for one's children, of hope for the future, of love. But it's also about finding love and unexpected joy. And about listening to the music and dancing.

Literary, evocative and beautifully written, still I found it confusing at times with the time flips, and I also thought it was repetitive.
I would have liked it so much more if it had been edited down. I found myself skipping near the end to see how

“Each person leaves a legacy--a single, small piece of herself, which makes richer each individual life and the collective life of humanity as a whole. But do not despair, for despair is a despicable and bourgeois affectation; we must not allow it. As for what happens next, well, as the Cuban poet Regino Pedroso once said, "como forjamos el hierro, forjaremos días nuevos": as we hammer out iron, we shall hammer out new days.”
John Nichols, The Nirvana Blues

“Listen cousin, the way things are supposed to work out, one day the struggles of all you screwed up little underdogs will forge a permanent rainbow that'll encircle this entire earth, I should live so long.”
John Treadwell Nichols, The Milagro Beanfield War
