Un viaje al coraz#65533;n del mal inspirado en El jard#65533;n de las delicias del Bosco .

Virtudes y cr#65533;menes son intercambiables entre s#65533; y reversibles: la naturaleza desdoblada del pecado, sus varias caras de poliedro.
Como sacados de un cuadro de El Bosco, los protagonistas de este libro son Arc#65533;ngel, el adolescente asesino; Luis B. Campoc#65533;, el ejecutivo ad#65533;ltero; Emma, la descuartizadora; una pareja incestuosa; un verdugo apodado La Viuda; las Susanas, tres hermanas indiferentes o vanidosas, y el Sir#65533;aco, profeta soberbio.

La perturbadora y ambigua idea de pecado se encarna en todos ellos. El jard#65533;n de las delicias ha dejado de esta colgado en el museo y se muestra m#65533;s real que nunca, vivido por estos personajes de carne y hueso que nos confiesan al o#65533;do su particular relaci#65533;n con el mal. #65533;Hasta qu#65533; punto son culpables? Sobre el lector recaer#65533; el reto moral de condenarlos o, tal vez, de indultarlos.

Con la fuerza y la sensibilidad que caracterizan su literatura, Laura Restrepo indaga en la complejidad #65533;tica de la transgresi#65533;n a trav#65533;s de una narraci#65533;n inquietante, original, por momentos aterradora y al mismo tiempo dulcemente humana. Cada pecado trae consigo su correspondiente culpa, pero tambi#65533;n su gota de alivio.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

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.
