Pot pourri : whistlings of an idler : a novel by Eugenio Cambacérès( Book )

13 editions published between 1924 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In an attempt to cure Buenos Aires of its corrupting influences, Cambaceres delivered Pot Pourri, a warts and all portrait of Buenosairean society. Its rich, wastrel narrator recounts a conjugal history of double adultery during the Carnival celebrations, where the seducer's flight is barred by the interventions of the husband's friend. Though fiction, Cambaceres's characters so closely resembled those of an actual Buenos Aires couple that a fury arose upon publication. In reaction, Cambaceres asked for the chance to explain, and wrote, "I have no desire to justify myself as I feel I have committed no crime... Mine are characters who exist, or could exist, as easily in Buenos Aires as in France, in Cochinchina, or in hell.""

In Sin rumbo Cambaceres portraits scenes of the Argentine upper class at the turn of the XIX Century. Detailed and realistic the author defines with literary uniqueness the atmosphere with the initial clash during the sheep shearing scene. Then come the noon horseback ride to the peasant woman's shack, the forced seduction down to complete surrender in body and soul, and the whim of a night spent together with the sensations that assault and repulse him. The flight to the mundane life in Buenos Aires, the club, the theatres, complete the portrait of a lost man who ends up facing nature in his way back to the estancia, in pursuit of a family life destiny will end up denying him. Cambaceres shows his literary power not only through his intellectual vision and deep knowledge of the argentine spirit, but also through the language prowess of conveying the true upper class "porteño" talk, that familiar Spanish jargon tainted with semi-french semi-gaucho argot that was so particular of his contemporaries and still subsists nowadays, though veiled to the unknowing
