`Suddenly We Spotted Borges Waiting To Cross The Road And We Guided Him Through The Cars... It Was A Miracle That We Made It.
Everybody Wanted To Help Borges To Cross The Road, So You Always Had Someone Trying To Take Him Off You.'
A sailor makes his way along the Uruguayan coast of the Rio de la Plata. From the radio station Pachcco, a stopping point for all mariners wishing to contact the mainland, he places a call to his wife. When a male voice answers, and the line falls dead immediately afterwards, the seaman begins to wonder whether it is the technology or his wife's fidelity that he must doubt.
Fusing wit tenderness. disillusionment and passion, the stories in this volume are united by Belgrano's idiosyncratic and award-winning narrative style. Engaging with Argentine popular culture and history, the author presents a cast of characters variously engaged in rehabilitation, subterfuge and affairs of the heart. The result is a charming and disarming snapshot of diverse lives in contemporary Argentina.
