"When it was first published in Spanish, THE TUNNEL won the applause of Thomas Mann and Albert Camus and was described as an existentialist classic, " reminded The New York Times Book Review, in its recent review. Indeed, THE TUNNEL is one of the most highly regarded short novels of the twentieth century. Since its first publication in 1948, it has been translated into most of the major languages of the world. In the fresh, compelling, and critically acclaimed translation by Margaret Sayers Peden, it is available for a whole new readership.
"The power of Sabato's story remains . . . . He delivers several satisfying satirical thrusts at the vagaries of the life of the urban intellectual that retain a remarkable contemporary resonance . . . . Sabato captures the intensity of passions run into uncharted passages where love promises not tranquility, but danger."
-- Los Angeles Times Book Review

Review:

El tunel"" (1948), del argentino Ernesto Sabato, es una de las grandes novelas sudamericanas de este siglo, cuyos ecos recogieron pronto en Europa Graham Greene y Camus. El relato, montado con los recursos de la novela policial, desarrolla un personaje que revela su psicologia introspectiva e impone al lector un analisis de la desesperanza. El protagonista, Juan Pablo Castel, persigue inutilmente lo inalcanzable, que no es sino el regreso a la infancia, simbolizada en la ventana de un cuadro, motivo reiterado largamente en la narracion. --Los editores
