Sabato's masterpiece of obsessive love and murder in 1950s Buenos Aires, new to Penguin Modern Classics.

About the Author

Ernesto Sabato was born in Argentina in 1911. He earned a PhD in physics before relocating to Paris. After World War II, he lost faith in science and began writing fiction, although he would burn much of his work. His three published novels are The Tunnel (1948), his masterpiece On Heroes and Tombs (1961) and The Angel of Darkness (1974). He also led the commission investigating those who disappeared during Argentina's Dirty War of the 1970s. Sabato died in 2011, two months before his 100th birthday.

Reviews

A book with some claim to be the first major set-piece in that carnival of fictional fireworks which mesmerized Latin America throughout the next decade. It offers a rich motherlode of imagery, language and haunting scenes -- Salman Rushdie
Bewitched, baroque, monumental * Newsweek *
A novelist of immense power ... uncompromising and original -- Colm Toibin * Guardian *
