Item Description

Argentina has produced some of the most well-know writers of the Americas: Jorge Luis Borges, Julio Cortázar, and Luisa Valenzuela, to name but a few from the country’s capital, Buenos Aires. But what lies beyond Argentina’s urban center will equally intrigue readers as they travel through one of the most geographically and culturally diverse regions of Latin America. This exciting collection of stories will take readers on a literary journey that climbs the Andes Mountains, navigates the great River Plate, traverses the expansive plains of the Pampas, and explores the ever-changing landscape of the Patagonia as it extends south to Tierra del Fuego. Seasoned travelers will recognize their favorite haunts and those yet unfamiliar with the region will long to make the journey.

Moving beyond the cultural icons that have become synonymous with Argentina (such as gauchos, tango, and maté), the stories gathered here reflect the country’s rich cultural and literary traditions as they assemble a cast of characters created by some of the finest writers of the last hundred years. Argentina challenges the imagination, tantalizes the senses, and tugs at readers’ heartstrings — leaving them wanting more.

Whereabouts Press is an independent publisher of books that convey a sense of a place—a country, a region, a city—through stories. Unlike guidebooks written by professional travel writers, Travelers Literary Companions feature stories written by literary writers—all of whom are native to the places they write about. They didn’t write specifically for travelers. They wrote because they had good stories to tell. And their stories tell us not just about people, but about the soul of a place.
