Guerrero irrefutably proves that journalism is one of the beaux arts. Below the light and agile surface that grabs your attention from the first lines, she shows a sureness and a seriousness that confer on her work a powerful consistency.--Mario Vargas Llosa
A Simple Story is about an expression of a culture that, unlike tango, has been passed over, neglected or forgotten by all but a few devotees, for whom it is an obsession. Its obscurity, this book suggests, is its salvation.
An epic of noble proportions--Guerriero is a mistress of the telling phrase or the revealing detail.--Sarah Crompton
A Simple Story recounts delirious obsession and mastery, and proves beyond a doubt that journalism has a place in the literary bracket.
Fascination and this quest to understand, which propels Guerriero's journey, is one readers will immediately become immersed in.--Diane Goodman "Five Minutes to Fame "
