      A Feast of Argentine Folklore

      There has been an Argentine Festival for over 29 years now. It is the creation of the charming Daniel Manzoni who has dedicated his life to presenting and promoting Argentine culture and food in the nation's capital. Produced at the Thomas Jefferson Middle School in Arlington Virginia, this venerable festival is a showcase for the local culture of the 'southern cone' of Latin America as well as including special invited guests who perform from 5:30 to 10:30 pm indoors and out, rain or shine. The evening is rich with tangos, malambos and zambas, Argentine foods and crafts. A highlight of the region's ethnic festivals, Mr. Manzoni has managed to pique the interest of a wide range of audiences who flock to this event each year.

    The Alchemy of 'Chronicle...'

    The Alchemy of 'Chronicle...'

    Written by // Jose Sueiro

    Whereas "Chronicle of a Death Foretold" is an interesting novella and a noteworthy experiment in the works of Garcia Marquez it is not, to my mind, of the caliber of his finest achievements. It is an exercise in storytelling around the parable of a woman's shame and the frenzied violence that the account of her deflowerment whips up in a small, rural town long ago someplace to the south. What makes it most compelling, much in the same way of Perez Reverte's riveting "Queen of the South", is its attempt to meld storytelling with straightforward reporting, weaving details of a newspaper crime feature with the persistence, artistry and imagination of a fiction writer. It is as if Marquez were experimenting with the idiom, melding his reporter's acumen with his novelistic instincts, attempting to fuse the elements that drove him his entire life -newspaper reporting and novel writing.
