Goodbye Buenos Aires

Goodbye Buenos Aires

Author(s): Andrew Graham-Yooll

Location(s): Buenos Aires

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): 1920s, 1930s

Goodbye Buenos Aires” is a vivid and earthly celebration of Argentina, which chronicles the rise and fall of the British colony in the ’20s and ’30s through the imaginative biography of one of its charismatic representatives – a hard-drinking, womanising, emigre Scotsman, who cut his way through the bars and brothels of the city whilst trading with farmers up-country. It is also the portrait of an errant father by a son, a descriptive labour of love for Argentina by one of its leading writers and journalists.
