But blood proves thicker than a fine Mendoza Cabernet Savignon even for a nihilistic gourmand like Pepe. Once there, he quickly learns that ;Buenos Aires is a beautiful city hell-bent on self destruction ; and he'll have to confront the traumas of Argentina's past head on if he wants to stay alive, and find his cousin. The Quintet is a moving psychological travelogue inhabited by boxers, scholars, seductive semioticians and Borges and infused with the tango, music, literature and, as always, divine cuisine.
