Ernesto Sabato

Ernesto Sabato is an Argentine writer. He was born in Rojas, a tiny town in Buenos Aires Province. Sabato began his studies at the Colegio Nacional de La Plata. He then read physics at the Universidad Nacional de La Plata, where he earned a Ph.D. He then attended the Sorbonne in Paris and worked at the Curie Institute. After World War II, he lost faith in science and started writing.

He published his first novel El Tunel (translated as "The Outsider" or "The Tunnel"). Written in 1948, this novel is told as the confession of the painter Juan Pablo Castel, who has murdered the only woman capable of understanding him. Throughout the novel Castel questions his actions and those of others. As narrator, Castel offers a detailed expose on why he killed his lover, Maria Iribarne. Authors such as Albert Camus and Graham Greene particularly lauded Sabato's novels.

In 1945, his second son, Mario Sabato was born.
