Description


Goodbye Buenos Aires is a vivid and earthy celebration of Argentina that chronicles the rise and fall of the British colony in the 20's and 30's through the imaginative biography of one of its charismatic representatives - a hard-drinking, womanizing, emigre Scotsman, who cut his way through the bars and brothels of the city whilst trading with farmers upcountry. It is also the biographical portrait of an errant father by a son and a moving description of Argentina by one of its leading writers and journalists. Andrew Graham-Yooll chronicles his now lost tribe, the Anglos - the British of Argentina - through this, at times harrowing memoir of separation, unpredictable politics, personal loss, and love rediscovered.
