Literary Pick (****)

The Tunnel
-Ernesto Sabato


Precisely the kind of literature I search and long to read. Obsessive, manic, compulsive, and finally tragic.
I coincidentally purchased this book together with Othello, both stories about irrational jealousy.
The Tunnel reminds me very much of The Kreutzer Sonata, another personal favorite in which both protagonists are insanely jealous and unable to control their emotions which leads them to murder.

The Tunnel pairs very well with Adiago for Strings.
