About the Book
"All of these stories were written quite quickly, mostly on Saturday mornings pushing against the deadline to get them into the paper the next day. Think of them as chronicles of a voyage, entries scribbled in a log book during a long adventure. When there was a break in the action, I would jot down these notes so that if we were shipwrecked there would be some record floating out there in the ocean."
— from the preface
This is the first in a collection of chapbooks titled “Little Epiphanies.” The texts are accompanied by the writer’s own photographs.
Kevin Carrel Footer is an artist deeply inspired by the intense passions of tango, Buenos Aires and life on the road. In words, images and music, he explores those passions in unexpected ways. Originally from California, he moved to Buenos Aires in 1992 to begin the spiritual practice of tango. For many years he was a columnist for the Buenos Aires Herald. He is the author of the book “A Tango before I Die” (2013). Playing harmonica, Kevin Carrel Footer tours the world with the Blue Tango Project alongside Argentine Latin Grammy-nominee María Volonté. Their innovative fusion of tango with the blues, their genre-bending compositions, and passionate live performances set to videos they shoot on the road have thrilled audiences on three continents. Their CDs “9 Vidas” and “Blue Tango” are snapshots of this creative adventure. Kevin's photographs have appeared in international magazines and graced the covers of award-winning CDs.
