"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

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"--

The investigation by Juan José Saer( Book )

60 editions published between 1994 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He's called 'the monster of the Bastille'. He's brutally murdered 27 elderly women in one area of Paris. Chief Inspector Morvan is in charge of the investigation into this macabre and sinister case: every victim seems to have invited the killer into her home, to have enjoyed a meal, even celebrated, before her death. And each time the killer has meticulously bathed himself, leaving the scene of the crime without a single fingerprint." "In Argentina meanwhile, an untitled manuscript by an unnamed author is discovered amongst the papers of a missing poet, known for his hatred of the novel." "The investigation seeks to unravel two cases - one criminal, one literary. Part police investigation, part historical account and part novel, it shows Saer at his virtuoso best, orchestrating the different layers effortlessly. Hitchcockian, blending suspense with superb descriptions of everyday life, this is both a crime novel and a journey into the psyche of horror."--BOOK JACKET
