Ballad of a Happy Immigrant
In the middle of the last century, the SS General Pueyrredón from Buenos Aires deposits Leo Boix's paternal grandfather on English soil for the first time. In the two years he spends there, he acquires a taste for his new homeland: from taking his tea white - muy blanco - to plunging into unfamiliar sensual worlds. So begins the poet's own journey, arriving in the United Kingdom as a young queer man. 'Ballad of a Happy Immigrant' tells of the life he makes there: a dazzling collection of what it means to live, love and write between two cultures and traditions.
