World tango ties
In Strangers Arms depicts the captivating, passionate, compelling world and spirit of tango better than anything else I have read since experiencing my own tango conversion experience almost 6 years ago. Beatriz Dujovne is a gifted writer and incomparable guide to the music, emotions, cultural evolution and sustaining power of this very special form of art and intimacy. Great fate and fortune struck just one week after I’d read this marvelous book while I stood in a cola in Buenos Aires at the famed tango Salon Canning, awaiting a screening of a documentary about early milongueros. The vivacious woman standing behind me turned out to be the beautiful Beatriz Dujovne herself.
