Like his other books, “Last Tangos in San Jose” consists of numerous stories concerning his interactions with sex workers, as well as observations regarding the ‘scene’ and the ‘hobby’ in general. The author is quite non judgmental, and obviously has a great deal of affection for the workers, even those who behave badly, of which there are a fair number. He is quite candid about mistakes he made and times he should have been more distrustful. But rather than becoming bitter, he takes the bad along with the good and enjoys his life and lifestyle in the San Jose scene.
He shares the story of the stripper’s night off, a pair of look alike sisters, a clueless gringo or two plus an epilogue to his biography of “Magdalena.”
You can enjoy this book whether or not you have read any of the previous books. If you have only read “Clueless Clyde in Costa Rica,” this book gives a slightly different perspective on the ‘hobby.’ It’s an easy read and the stories all ring true.
