Bruno’s Last Tango tells the story of that transformation. That of a man who knows that death is stalking him and so he bets all he has on life, even at the cost of losing everything he created. With an exquisite prose and an absolute control over the psychology of a character who knows himself less than he believes, this novel narrates a journey of passion toward the unknown. It may end in tragedy or liberation, but the journey, justifies the end.
“The most recent novel by the Argentine writer Mempo Giardinelli narrates the journey of a man in search of happiness. Giardinelli’s novel is based on the fantasy of living another life, leaving everything behind and starting over. It shifts between the paradox of a man who feels guilty and one who found happiness by making a radical change in his life.” — Revista Diners Club
“The book ends without betraying its driving force. Parting from a restrained liberating despair, it remains faithful to an existentialist stoicism that unites transparency with passion.” — Diario La Nación, Buenos Aires
