520    Buenos Aires: city of contrasts, contradictions; always on
       the edge of chaos; in love with its own disorder despite 
       the crude, transitory violence, the lack of law and order,
       the ubiquitously hurled insult, the thunderous boom of 
       traffic, and honking, hurled curses. Its inhabitants love/
       hate the city. In the language of the port-dwellers, irony
       is currency. The multimillionaires of Puerto Madero deal 
       in this irony with as fluently as the workers in the 
       "misery cities," which is what we call the poorest 
       neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. This shared language comes 
       from the mansions and the shanties that are built side by 
       side, separate by nothing but a single street or railroad 
       track--contradiction within eyesight. In the stories that 
       make up this volume we glimpse what Buenos Aires really is
       : distinctive points of view, as well as the narrative 
       potential of a city that has reinvented itself many times 
       over. This collection highlights the relations between the
       social and economic classes--from their tensions, from 
       their cruelties, and also from their love. Deep inside, 
       inhabitants of Buenos Aires live this contradiction.
