What an honor: The Gods of Tango has received a Stonewall Book Award in Fiction from the American Library Association — the longest-running LGBTQ book award in the nation. You can learn more about the prize and the venerable list of past winners here.
I’ve been continuing to present The Gods of Tango at venues such as the
UC Riverside Writers Week, the Annual Fundraising Luncheon for the American Association of University Women, a reading in support of LitCamp, and a class at Stanford University that studied the book.
More happy news: the rights to The Gods of Tango have sold to a wonderful French publisher, Le Cherche Midi — so a French edition is now in the works, to join the translations into German, Norwegian, Polish, Italian, and Romanian that are already released or on their way.
There is also a new, extended interview with me in the Los Angeles Review of Books, conducted by the deeply intelligent Natassja Schiel, in which we discuss a wide range of topics connected to The Gods of Tango, gender transgressions, the hidden histories of Argentina, how novels are created, and many other things.
Finally, The Gods of Tango paperback will be out next month, on May 17th. I will be doing a few events in the Bay Area to celebrate. Thank you and stay tuned!
