First I phoned J.Borges, then L.Vian in Renens (Vaud) before finding M. Gardel. I really like Borges’ stories and Vian’s prose but nothing compares to Gardel’s voice. One evening, I think it was a Monday, I made a rendezvous with M. Gardel at the Buffet at the train station in Renens. He spoke to me about architecture, amateur films, about the tango, his uncle in America. We decided to meet again.
