Cabaceos aside, the author gives a nod to her other passions, particularly yoga and zen, which she rightly weaves into a leminiscate with tango, as have other notable authors, of whom I recommend Johanna Siegmann : The Tao of Tango . "Tango, An Argentine Love Story", was written by a sexy, savvy & spirited lover of life, tango and men, whilst living in Buenos Aires. The author knows more than a thing or two about her pet subjects!
I have 50 books on tango and this is the best in its sub-genre, that of the travelogue/autobiography of a tango lover, confessing all, whilst living the life. This tasty tanguera, our Camille, has something to say that's worth listening to, and she spells it out with panache. Her book does what "Sixty, Sex & Tango" (and Joan Moran, its author) failed to do: it provides a riveting & fun read, on all of the subjects in its title - and more! Unlike Joan, Camille has a much broader range and is less self-congratulatory. She is also far more adept in her understanding, not least of political science - she can think for herself under the crushing weight of corporate media news manipulation - but especially of tango and spiritual development.
Reading these 300+ pages was an utter pleasure. I too love tango and am fascinated by interweaving it with zen, dao and tantra, for their cross-overs with tango are multifarious and profound. I laughed aloud along with Camille; I empathized with her and, I fell for her! Camille's appreciation of the finer things in life - and not least in tango - her fire and passion; her lust and her control, all
ease the way, to tempt the reader into losing herself within these steamy and sensuous scenes, described and coloured so aptly by the woman who lived them.
Camille Cusumano is as hot and, I imagine, just as watchable, as Radley Metzger's Camille! Camille 2000 [DVD ] and without doubt as readable as the paranormal romance heroine of the same name in Tess Oliver's tome Camille This reviewer, this lover of Di Sarli and of intense, delicate & romantic tangos hopes for a chance to enjoy a Golden Age tanda with Camille one day soon.
If you like to experience yourself through the journeys of other people, then you will find this fast-paced narrative engaging.
For those who are immersed in social argentine tango and could do without the drama, then save yourself from this train wreck. I have no tears for this lady and only picked up this book because a group of tango friends thought it would be a good idea to have a book club night.
After reading this book, I felt like an emotional tampon. The author makes a grevious mistake by cheating on her boyfriend, rejects his marriage proposal then gets bent out of shape when a mutual friend goes for him leaving her out of the loop. She sulks in her own issues and finds herself in argentina where she goes through a journey of self discovery. Now I would be happy with a story about self-discovery, but it's the way the character/author acted in her self-discovery that makes me think that she didn't discover anything but an over-inflated ego. She talks about how she didn't really need the taxi dancer she hired and calls herself a tango goddess. Before I end up flipping a desk I'll just say this. If the author is reading this, I'm sure you meant well and I'm sure you poured your heart into this, but I don't find this story inspiring or sincere at all. Maybe I'm a cave man and missed the point, but it feels like I was reading about a bunch of baggage that someone wrote in their journal. I don't feel this story is sincere at all and if anybody, man or woman, claims themself to be some tango diety, After reading this book I felt emotionally drained and used. If I wanted to feel that way, I can just stop by any night club in hollywood and listen to every wannabe actor's sob story.
