     Tango: My Childhood, Backwards and in High Heels
Publisher: The Feminist Press at CUNY
Author(s): Justin Vivian Bond

"Bond's fabulosity is matched by a trenchant wit, and [V's] over-the-top stories are smartly edged with politics, sexual or otherwise."?The New York Times

Recently hailed as "the greatest cabaret artist of [V's] generation" in The New Yorker, Mx. Justin Vivian Bond makes a brilliant literary debut with this staggeringly candid and hilarious novella-length memoir.

With a recent diagnosis of attention deficit disorder, and news that his first lover from childhood has been imprisoned for impersonating an undercover police officer, Bond recalls in vivid detail coming of age as a trans kid. Always haunted by the knowledge of being "different," Bond was further confused when the bully next door wanted to meet secretly. Their trysts went on for years, and made Bond acutely aware of sexual power and vulnerability. With inimitable style, Bond raises issues about LGBTQ adolescence, homophobia, parenting, and sexuality, while being utterly entertaining.

Singer, songwriter, and Tony-nominated performance artist Mx. Justin Vivian Bond is an Obie, Bessie, and Ethyl Eichelberger Award winner. As one half of the performance duo Kiki and Herb, Bond has toured the world, headlining at Carnegie Hall, the Sydney Opera House, and London's Queen Elizabeth Hall, and starring in a Tony nominated run on Broadway, Kiki and Herb Alive on Broadway. His film credits include a role in John Cameron Mitchell's feature Shortbus. Bond is currently releasing a record, Dendrophile, and is writing a play with Sandra Bernhard.

     Hold Me Tight and Tango Me Home
Publisher: Algonquin Books
Author(s): Maria Finn

Maria Finn's husband was cheating. First she threw him out. Then she cried. Then she signed up for tango lessons. It turns out that tango has a lot to teach about understanding love and loss, about learning how to follow and how to lead, how to live with style and flair, take risks, and sort out what it is you really want. As Maria's world begins to revolve around the friendships she makes in dance class and the milongas (social dances) she attends regularly in New York City, we discover with her the fascinating culture, history, music, moves, and beauty of the Argentine tango. With each new dance step she learns?the embrace, the walk, the sweep, the exit?she is one step closer to returning to the world of the living. Eventually Maria travels to Buenos Aires, the birthplace of tango, and finds the confidence to try romance again.�

As exhilarating as the dance itself, the story whirls us into the center of the ballroom dancing craze. And buoyed by the author's humor and passion, it imparts surprising insights about how to get on with life after you've lost in love.

     Embracing Tango
Author(s): Gustavo Benzecry Sab�

Aesthetics, respect and discipline are some of the concepts Benzecry Sab� has analyzed in depth in this book. In its pages dance is understood as a unity that not only plunges us into pleasure, but also raises our spirits.

Embracing Tango shows us the technical tools we need to develop so we can dance freely and creatively. It includes a meticulous explanation of six basic Tango figures and a detailed analysis of the embrace, the dance floor, surrender and improvisation. It also discusses the Milonga Codes ? set out here for the very first time ? and strategies and suggestions designed to encourage dance invitations and their acceptance.

Embracing Tango is like a prism which encompasses everything from physical and spatial problems, to the social and psychological behavior of the dancers at Tango dance halls.

Dancing Tango is all about dancing what we are. And it is precisely here that we find the great metaphor that the author shows with sharpness. This book helps us to find our essence in a shared embrace.

     Passion for Tango 2nd ed
Publisher: Dingley Press
Author(s): David Turner

This book really helps you understand what it is about tango that makes it so appealing to dancers and so addictive. Not only does David Turner tell you about the history of it but also the background of logic that allows you to understand why certain movements work. He has lots of great exercises for improving connection between partners and helpful tips about ochos, giros, ganchos etc.
This book is quite different from so many other books about tango. It's the perfect companion book for anyone who wants to follow up a class. You can dip into it as you want, but because of the light and amusing way it is writen, you might want to read it all the way through. David writes, not from the perspective of a teacher, although he is one, but from the viewpoint of a learner so, every now and then, you get a sort of "Aaaah!" moment when something you felt yourself comes up.

     A Pickpocket's History of Argentine Tango
Publisher: CreateSpace
Author(s): Victor Levant Ph.D.

A Pickpockets History of Argentine Tango explores the rise of Tango in Argentina: its social and political climate, its characters, music, dance, song and poetry. Many fine books have been written on how to dance Tango. This is not one of those. This is a history book whose protagonist is Tango. The Author brings a unique perspective to his reader with a Ph.D. in International Relations and extensive knowledge of world politics and Argentine culture. His incisive acumen as a psychotherapist provides a window into the soul of the Tango world. The psychology of the Tango is found in the poetry of its lyrics: a direct link with the hopes, fears, frustrations, and illusions of their time. �??The dance when deeply engaged, revealed the human condition: the solitude of all human beings, the ephemeral nature of modern relations and the need for relationship. We are all exiles, refugees from life, uprooted by immigration....Tango was an escape in order to bear the lot of life. The music was a reflection of existence. People were thrilled to hear the sounds of Tango music, and recognize their favorite composers, delighting in the orchestras who gave meaning to their emotions. People were moved to move.�?? All the cultures of the world have their own music and dance. Things that could not be said in words were expressed in music and song. Tango is the same, but with one important difference: the people who created the Tango were from the four corners of the world and had nothing in common except this dance, this poetry, this music. This book explores Tango as a social phenomenon, born in Buenos Aires and spread worldwide. �??They were Italians and Spaniards, Britons and Jews, poor peasants from Germany, Russia and Poland. Yet in the midst of this life of despair and danger, these men did not fight to the death; they fought for respect. Competition was fierce, but the men devised a method of selection. Dance. Tango, they called it.
