"Juan José Saer's Scars explores a crime committed by Luis Fiore, a thirty-nine-year-old laborer who shot his wife twice in the face with a shotgun; or, rather, it explores the circumstances of four characters who have some connection to the crime: a young reporter, Ángel, who lives with his mother and works the courthouse beat; a dissolute attorney who clings to life only for his nightly baccarat game; a misanthropic and dwindling judge who's creating a superfluous translation of The Picture of Dorian Gray; and, finally, Luis Fiore himself, who, on May Day, went duck hunting with his wife, daughter, and a bottle of gin."--Page 4 of cover

El entenado by Juan José Saer( Book )

56 editions published between 1983 and 2016 in Spanish and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un grumete parte en una expedición a territorios rioplatenses en el siglo XVI, y en la misma es capturado por una tribu indígena, en el seno de la cual presencia actos innombrables que recordará el resto de su vida. Lo que no es fácil de reducir en El entenado, obra maestra de Juan José Saer, es el cúmulo de temas que este viaje despierta en el recuerdo del grumete, y en el de nosotros los lectores, que sin duda nos toparemos con las aguas turbulentas del significado de los actos, la creación de los lenguajes que nombran al mundo, el papel de la memoria y su falibilidad en el devenir último de los seres humanos. No estamos acá solo frente a una gran novela, nos encontramos con un instrumento ficcional de primer orden entre las manos, con una de las más grandes obras literarias en lengua castellana de todo un siglo."--Back cover

"Garay receives a computer disk containing a manuscript--which might be fictional, or could be a memoir--by Doctor Real, a nineteenth-century physician tasked with leading a group of five mental patients on a trip to a recently constructed asylum. Their trip, which ends in disaster and fire, is a brilliant tragicomedy thanks to the various insanities of the patients, among whom is a delusional man who greatly over-estimates his own importance and a nymphomaniac nun who tricks everyone--even the other patients--into sleeping with her"--Provided by publisher
