Abstract:
I became interested in the work of Antonio Dal Masetto through reading his weekly column in the Argentine newspaper Pdgina/12 when I lived in Buenos Aires for a period in 2002. These were short observational pieces about characters and situations in the city with a narrative perspective which seemed to denote an 'outsider'. As an outsider myself, I found this voice inclusive and intriguing and also sometimes very funny. It struck me that the perceptions in this column were more profound than material I might have expected to appear in a daily broadsheet newspaper. The style of the writing appealed to me this cool observational tone, a gentle humour, a simple prose and a certain implicit quality which reminded me of poetry. This was my initial subjective response.
