Tango, Tangoing: Poems & Art


Tango, Tangoing: Poems & Art by Mong-Lan

Welcome to the tango, sensual, elusive and alluring. In Tango, Tangoing: Poems & Art, Mong-Lan extends an invitation to explore with her the sensual world of Argentine tango through poetry and art. Her striking poetry and elegant pen & ink drawings of tango dancers illuminate and reveal this remarkable world in an original manner that captivates and intrigues, leaving you breathless from its impassioned elaborations and imagistic intensity. Prize-winning poet, visual artist and Argentine tango dancer / teacher, Mong-Lan combines her talents and knowledge in one beautiful, luminous book. Mong-Lan's honors include the Juniper Prize, a Fulbright Fellowship in Vietnam, a Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University, inclusion in Best American Poetry and Pushcart Prize Anthology volumes. Her artwork has been exhibited in galleries in the United States, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the U.S. Capitol House, and in public exhibitions in Tokyo, Seoul, Bali and Bangkok.
