Product Details


“Swann, an American who has lived in Buenos Aires for the past decade, vividly evokes the city and its lively, diverse, and conflicted social landscape, from the denizens of posh hotels to the unfortunate poor living in the city’s slums. . . . Seductively hard to put down.”—The Boston Globe

“The three women in Maxine Swann’s The Foreigners hope to leave their worries behind by plunging into the wild glamour of Buenos Aires, but find even greater surprises when the stumble into the recesses of their own lives.”—W

“Post-crash Buenos Aires is the nourish setting of Maxine Swann’s The Foreigners, in which an untethered American divorcee dabbles in increasingly risky funny games with the help of a local provocateuse.”—Vogue

“The city of Buenos Aires dazzles in this novel about three women who find sex, adventure, and more sex in the Paris of South America.”—O, The Oprah Magazine

“Atmospheric, evocative literary fiction that ruminates on what it means and how it feels to be foreign.”—Booklist

“Whether native or foreigner, each character is displaced and wrestles with the outcome. With lyricism and observational skill that recalls early Joan Didion, Swann brings Buenos Aires to life.”—Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Beautifully written, sensual and seductive.”—Kirkus
