Description:

El tnel es la mejor introduccin al universo prodigioso de Sabato; un clfsico... una historia sobre el drama del hombre arrojado en el sinsentido mfs doloroso: la conciencia de la nadaJuan Pablo Castel es un pintor recluido en prisin por el asesinato de Mara Iribarne. Durante su encierro rememora la cadena de acontecimientos que lo llevaron a perder el control, a convertirse en un hombre posedo por una insalvable soledad, la de la ausencia de la mujer amada hasta el lmite, la del enga_o que ha convertido su corazn en un pedazo duro y fro de hielo y ha colocado entre sus manos el cuchillo que pone fin al sufrimiento.T_cnicamente perfecta y de lectura apasionante, El tnel excede el negativismo fcido de Sartre y la fren_tica huida hacia el vaco que plantea El extranjero de Camus, pero tiene de esos dos maestros literarios la impronta genial que hace de la escritura una radiografa del alma atormentada.

Ernesto Sábato was born in Rojas, Argentina on June 24, 1911. He earned a doctorate in physics from Universidad Nacional de La Plata and worked in Paris on atomic radiation at the Joliot-Curie Laboratory. He began writing in 1941 and was a prolific essayist on subjects such as science, national culture and human rights. He wrote several novels including The Tunnel (1948), On Heroes and Tombs (1961) and The Angel of Darkness (1974). He received numerous awards including the French Legion of Honour, the Medici Prize of Italy and Spain's Cervantes Prize. He was also a painter and his works were once displayed at the Pompidou Centre in Paris. He led an investigation into crimes committed under the military dictatorship of Argentina from 1976 to 1983. The commission's reports served as the basis for prosecuting leading figures of the dictatorship after the return to democracy. He died of complications from bronchitis on April 30, 2011 at the age of 99.
