In a bar in the Buenos Aires suburb of Villa Crespo our narrator recalls his encounters with an old man of Lithuanian descent, Samuel Warschauer, whom he came to know shortly before the man died. Among his papers, he found the script of a curious play entitled The Moldavian Pimp. Performed in Yiddish, the play concerns young Jewish girls from the Ukraine promised the hopes and freedoms of a new life in Argentina, only to find themselves sold into prostitution.


Set in the Argentine capital and Paris, and ranging in time from the 1920s to the present day, Edgardo Cozarinsky's beautiful and moving novel about Jewish immigrants may be among the few records we have of an extraordinary and little-known twilight society.

Edgardo Cozarinsky

Edgardo Cozarinsky is an Argentinian writer and filmmaker. He is best known for his Spanish-language novel Vudú urban.

During the period 1970-1990, Cozarinsky published little. However, his sole novel from the period gained a wide audience - Vudú urbano (Urban voodoo, 1985), a mixture of fiction and essay not unlike his film work, with prologues by Susan Sontag and Cuban writer Guillermo Cabrera Infante.

In 2008 he started work on the libretto for a chamber opera with the musician Pablo Mainetti – Ultramarina, based on motives from his own novel El rufián moldavo (The Moldavian Pimp).
