Guerriero transforms Rodolfo’s quest into a fable, reminiscent of the work of her countrymen Jorge Luis Borges and Julio Cortázar….A timeless tale rendered in spare, evocative prose.
—Sarah Crompton, The Spectator
An epic of noble proportions—Guerriero is a mistress of the telling phrase or the revealing detail.
A Simple Story is about an expression of a culture that, unlike tango, has been passed over, neglected or forgotten by all but a few devotees, for whom it is an obsession. Its obscurity, this books suggests, is its salvation.
—Mario Vargas Llosa
Guerriero irrefutably proves that journalism can be one of the beaux arts. Below the light and agile surface that grabs your attention from the first lines, she shows a sureness and a seriousness that confer on her work a powerful consistency.
