Washing Dishes in Hotel Paradise, Paperback Book


Engaging with Argentinian popular culture and history, the author presents a cast of characters variously engaged in rehabilitation, subterfuge, affairs of the heart and even, unwittingly, cinematography.

The result is a charming and disarming snapshot of diverse lives in contemporary Argentina. A sailor makes his way along the Uruguayan coast of the Rio de la Plata.

Reaching the radio station Pacheco, 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.
