Product description

Review

'An existentialist classic ... Retains a chilling, memorable power' ― The New York Times Book Review

'Sabato captures the intensity of passions run into uncharted passages where love promises not tranquillity, but danger' ― Los Angeles Times

Heralded by Albert Camus and Thomas Mann and widely translated, ''The Tunnel'' is the brief, obsessive, sometimes delirious confession of a convicted murderer. -- Robert Coover ― New York Times Book Review

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.
