Synopsis: This haunting jungle of a novel has been hailed as "a masterpiece" by Luis Bunuel and "one of the great novels not only of Spanish America, but of our time" by Carlos Fuentes. The story of the last member of the aristocratic Azcoitia family, a monstrous mutation protected from the knowledge of his deformity by being surrounded with other freaks as companions, The Obscene Bird of Night is a triumph of imaginative, visionary writing. Its luxuriance, fecundity, horror, and energy will not soon fade from the reader's mind. (Verba Mundi)

Product Description: Humberto who lives and works at a convent home for old women loses his sanity as he becomes obsessed with black magic and his duty to protect a monstrous child.

Delirious, poetical, associative, ironic, full of social observation, Boschian and Dickensian. One of the great novels not only of Spanish America. But of our time. Chapeau, maitre, chapeau mill e fois. " Luis Bunuel says "It is a masterpiece. The ferocious atmosphere, the obsessive repetitions, the mutations of the characters, the 'purely surrealistic' structure of the narrative, the irrational associations, the immense imaginative freedom, the contemptuous disregar d of the rules as to what is good and what is bad, what is beautiful and what is ugly, leave me stunned.".
