Maria Finn on The New Yorker “Book Bench”

Maria Finn’s new memoir Hold Me Tight, and Tango Me Home (and the ongoing Heartbreak Competition at Maria’s website)  is featured on The New Yorker’s Book Bench” blog today. Read the article here.

“After she discovered that her husband had been unfaithful, Maria Finn threw out his possessions, divorced him, and began considering the next phase of her life. The two had been planning a trip to South America—during their time in Argentina, they were going to take tango lessons—but now Finn, living in New York City, decided to learn tango on her own, fly to Buenos Aires solo, and, in the process, regain her strength.”

“Finn is hosting a heartbreak competition—through this Sunday, February 28th, readers can share, in two hundred words or fewer, the grand tragedy of their lives. The contest is judged by Margo Howard, Dean Olsher, and David Nadelberg; the winner will have his or her story arranged as a tango song by Marlan Barry.”
