Reviews

"A fascinating look at the history and culture of the Argentinean dance."
--St. Petersburg Times

"Finn incorporates her deep understanding of tango into the story, revealing its history even as she explores her own relationship with the dance. . . . [she] repairs her outlook on life and men in general, while finding comfort, challenges and encouragement in the arms of strangers."
-BookPage

"A gracefully rendered memoir . . . Refreshingly candid analyses of her choices and a vivid cast of friends and dance partners . . . Finn demystifies the illustrious world of tango with wry yet reverent insight."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A lively debut memoir."
--Booklist

"Hold Me Tight Tango Me Home is beautifully told. Maria Finn relays her adventures in the world of tango with excitement, wit, and insight."
--Robert Farris Thompson, author of Tango: The Art History of Love
