From the Publisher
This new edition of Cambacere's classic fin-de-siécle work Sin rumbo, a prototype for later naturalist novels, is a must for any literature course that highlights nineteenth century Hispanic American Narrative in general, as well as other thematics, such as gender issues and their relation to nation-building and national culture in particular. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The story follows a young Andres through an exhausting series of excesses of self indulgence, bouts of depression and introspection that ultimately lead the protagonist to search for solace in a return to the simpler life of the Pampas and the promise of a new child to find some redemption from the terrible consequences of his debauchery. The novel ends with the final frustration of that hope and Andres' death at his own hand.
Sin rumbo is not only a popular read in campuses across the country, it is a rather rich repository for anyone interested in the advent of Positivism in Latin American Literature, the Generation of 1880, critical approaches to social space, gender studies, the rise of the Pampas in the Argentine Imaginary, among numerous other critical themes. Perhaps its most appealing feature, however, is that with a proper introduction, the novel's concise story is as accessible to a broad range of readers as it is fruitful to any literary researcher. All told, the novel makes for great reading whether as cultural artifact or introductory text for students beginning to read Latin American Literature for the first time.
