Asymptotic expansion of a power series.

Here is problem that has been bothering me:

What is the asymptotic behaviour of
f(x) = sum_{n=1}^infinity (x^n)/(n-r),
where r is a (given) large irrational number
and -1<x<1, as an expansion in r ?

Maybe the problem isn't well-posed as r can be
arbitarily close to an integer?

All help appreciated.
