  • Summary
  • From one of Argentina’s greatest contemporary storytellers, The Scent of Buenos Aires gathers twenty-five of Hebe Uhart’s most remarkable and incandescent short stories in English for the first time. The Scent of Buenos Aires offers the first book-length English translation of Uhart’s work, drawing together her best vignettes of quotidian life: moments at the zoo, the hair salon, or a cacophonous homeowners association meeting. She writes in unconventional, understated syntax, constructing a delightfully specific perspective on life in South America. These stories are marked by sharp humor and wit: discreet and subtle, yet filled with eccentric and insightful characters. Uhart’s narrators pose endearing questions about their lives and environments – one asks “Bees – do you know how industrious they are?” while another inquires, “Are we perhaps going to hell in a hand basket?”
