Infamous for the murder of Maria Iribarne, the artist Juan Pablo Castel is
now writing a detailed account of his relationship with the victim from his
prison cell: obsessed from the first moment he saw her examining one of his
paintings, Castel had become fixated on her over the next months and
fantasized over how they might meet again. When he happened upon her one
day, a relationship was formed which swiftly convinced him of their mutual
love. But Castel�s growing paranoia would lead him to destroy the one thing
he truly cared about... Sabato's first novel El T�nel (translated as �The
Outsider� or �The Tunnel�), written in 1948, is framed as the confession of
the painter Juan Pablo Castel, who has murdered the only woman capable of
understanding him. Sabato�s novels were praised by authors such as Albert
Camus and Graham Greene.
