Primera novela del gran autor chileno José Donoso en la que prefigura los temas que marcarán su obra: decadencia, identidad, transgresión y locura...
 
Andrés, solitario y cincuentón, es el desconcertado testigo de los últimos días de una abuela nonagenaria que se debate entre la niebla y los relámpagos de la demencia.

Esperpéntica a la vez que realista, la primera novela del más célebre narrador chileno de este fin de siglo prefigura los temas que marcarán su obra: decadencia, identidad, transgresión y locura...
En esta obra, el lector despierta a una realidad grosera, donde los personajes desnudan sus recuerdos y la historia de algunas rancias familias santiaguinas, encerradas en caserones que nutren sus obsesiones más oscuras.

Un clásico de la novela latinoamericana.
 
«El más literario de los escritores de nuestra generación.» Carlos Fuentes
