Goodbye Buenos Aires (Paperback)

£12.99
Usually despatched in 7-10 days.

Synopsis

"Goodbye Buenos Aires" is a vivid and earthy celebration of Argentina, which 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, womanising, 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.

Andrew Graham-Yooll was born in 1944 in Buenos Aires of a Scottish father and English Mother. He is the author of some twenty books, written in English and Spanish. A State of Fear, first published by Eland in 1986 has become a classic on the years of terror in Argentina. Graham-Yool joined the Buenos Aires Herald in 1966, leaving the paper in 1973 when he had to go into exile during the military dictatorship. In Britain he worked for the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian and South magazine before being appointed editor of Index on Censorship magazine. In 1994 he returned to Argentina and the Buenos Aires Herald, where he became editor-in-chief and president of the board. Before his return to Argentina, Graham-Yooll was a fellow at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge.
