Summary
  • As though taken from Bosch's paintings, several offenders display their crimes in the pages of Sin: a killer, an adulterer, a butcher, an incestuous couple, an indifferent woman, an executioner, and a voyeur, as well as the shadow of the heavy-handed monarch himself. They must all appear before the only judge who can pardon them: the reader. The protagonists of these tales exist independently, but nevertheless make up an entity, like the arcana in a tarot deck. One common thread unites them: they have all committed atrocious crimes, but their lives are marked by what we call evil. To what point are they guilty? Laura Restrepo investigates the dense moral complexity of sins through this original fresco that is unsettling, revealing, and terrifying, but somehow also sweetly human
  • Como sacados de un cuadro de El Bosco, los protagonistas de este libro son Arcángel, el adolescente asesino; Luis B. Campoce, el ejecutivo adultero; Emma, la descuartizadora; una pareja incestuosa; un verdugo apodado La Viuda; las Susanas, tres hermanas indiferentes o vanidosas, y el Siriaco, profeta soberbio. La perturbadora y ambigua idea de pecado se encarna en todos ellos. El jardín de las delicias ha dejado de esta colgado en el museo y se muestra más real que nunca, vivido por estos personajes de carne y hueso que nos confiesan al oído su particular relación con el mal. Hasta qué punto son culpables? Sobre el lector recaerá el reto moral de condenarlos o, tal vez, de indultarlos
