Virginia Woolf wrote, What a lark What a plunge Meghan Flaherty has written a wonderful book Encountering tango, she encountered a series of cultures and histories that of the dance itself that of its impassioned students, teachers, and acolytes in New York and elsewhere that of her own very particular desires Like a first rate piece of dance, shes gotten the proportions right the small details, the sweep of the whole, the use of space, scenery, the group, and the solo players She is entertaining, thoughtful, and trustworthy because her self examinationdoubts, insecurities, griefis never self

Flaherty is simply an astonishing writer Brimming with sensuous detail and sophisticated wit, every page ofTango Lessonsseduces and rebuffs, beguiles and delights This is easily one of the finest books ever written about dance, and every bit as graceful as the art itself Bronwen Dickey, author ofPit Bull The Battle over an American Icon In Meghan Flahertys Tango Lessons, tango plays a role similar to that of the fancy restaurant in Stephanie Danlers SweetbitterAlthough Sweetbitter is fiction and Tango Lessons is memoir, the books have a similar tone, a dramatic, Sylvia

trust in herself, but its also a beautiful look at the history of tango itself BookRiot As lyrically written as the steps she practices HelloGiggles Tango Lessons takes Flaherty from humdrum New York City dance studios to an intoxicating subculture that had been thrumming, unbeknownst to her, under the surface of her city all along Thats not all she discovers, of coursewhile shes emphatic that tango isnt the fishnets and stilettos dance of cultural stereotype, it is still powerfully intimate, physical, and sensual Flaherty lyrically captures the essence of the dance, as well as her stumbling journey into self discovery, with a bit of toe sucking and bad sex along the way Thrillist You know right away, as a dancer does, that you are in good hands Like Sweetbitter, this is a memoir of a young woman trying to make it in contemporary New York City Like H Is for Hawk and Julie and Julia, it is also portrait of obsessionFlaherty is self aware and writes beautifully, even as
