"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 grumete de una expedición española al Río de la Plata, a principios del siglo XVI, es capturado y adoptado por los indios colastines. Conoce así unas tradiciones y rituales que lo enfrentan a nuevas percepciones de la realidad. ¿A qué se debe la costumbre de la tribu, por lo demás pacífica, de celebrar anualmente una orgía de sexo y canibalismo? ¿Por qué el grumete no corre la misma suerte que sus compañeros? En el mejor tono de las tradicionales Crónicas de Indias, Saer nos coloca frente a cuestiones como lo real, la memoria y el lenguaje, dentro de una historia que se lee como un libro de aventuras
