‘El Argentino’ is a free newspaper that is distributed on the Subte in Buenos Aires, a bit like the ‘Evening Standard’ in London. We got this excellent coverage in the Zona Norte edition, which covers all the stations on the North side of town. Click on the picture to view the pdf of the whole page. In case you don’t speak Spanish, ‘Destacado’ here means something like ‘Pick of the week’.
The table below presents a map of the various editions of “Tango Stories”:
Version 2 (i.e. the 2nd editions of the English and German text) has an index and, as a new appendix, an essay on listening to tango music. If you only have the first edition, you can read this essay on todotango (English only).
The 2nd edition of the German text is also ready!
Die 2. Auflage des deutschen Textes ist auch bereit!

I am excited to formally announce the forthcoming release of the Spanish version of “Tango Stories” in Buenos Aires this Easter. The book has gone to the printers and will be launched at the Maracaibo (the former Marabú cabaret) on Tuesday 14th April 2015. Later in the year the book will be made available outside Argentina through Amazon.
This project was made possible by the Argentine Tango Society to whom I express my thanks. It’s humbling for me that people want to support my work in this way. I must confess, it is with some trepidation that I look ahead to presenting my work in Argentina. Thus far, however, the reaction from Argentines has been universally positive.
The 2nd edition of Tango Stories is now also available directly from us, at a discounted price.

I’m delighted to announce the release of the second edition of “Tango Stories”. I have been continuously updating the text in the two years since “Tango Stories” first appeared, and this second edition is completely revised. There are some additional discographies and new appendices, including an essay on how to listen to tango music, a condensed version of my most requested lecture. There is also an index – two in fact, one of the orchestras and musicians, and another of the themes referenced.
How to get the book:
I also have an order at a printers in the UK which should be delivered to me before xmas. I will make a further announcement when I have them.
I am very pleased that this second edition is finally available.
That’s right – the 1st edition hardback is now sold out. If you desperately want a hardback, there are just a few copies left at amazon in the UK.
Don’t worry, though – the 2nd edition is almost ready to go! It’s at the printers right now. More details very soon.
In the interval, the 1st edition paperback is still on sale from amazon US, or better still from Createspace where it’s cheaper (see the previous post).
To encourage US customers to buy the new Troilo book at createspace, I’m offering a 15% discount on the retail price with this discount code: FG7T6VZB.
This code is not valid at amazon.com – only at createspace. What’s more, it’s valid for Tango Stories as well. Feel free to share this code with everyone.
