Source text - Spanish Hace algunos años escribí Un país de novela, cuyo subtítulo era Viaje hacia la mentalidad de los argentinos. Incorporé como epígrafe una elocuente afirmación de Enrique Santos Discépolo que decía: “El nuestro es un país que tiene que salir de gira”… Nos habíamos convertido en un espectáculo. Nuestros éxitos y fracasos eran motivo de extrañeza, podíamos provocar lágrimas y carcajadas. Asombro. También admiración, curiosidad, odio.
Translation - English Some years ago I wrote Un país de novela [A Novel of a Country], the subtitle of which was Viaje a la mentalidad de los argentinos [A Trip To the Mentality of the Argentinians]. As an epigraph, I added an eloquent statement by Enrique Santos Discépolo that said: “Ours is a country that should go on tour”… We had become a spectacle. Our successes and failures were cause for surprise; we could provoke tears or guffaws. Amazement. Also admiration, curiosity, hatred.
