Three people are joined in a fatal act of violence - the bride, returned in disgrace to her parents only hours after the wedding; the bridegroom, who believes himself dishonored; the heedless young dandy, blithely unaware of his central role in the mounting drama. A dark and profound novel about the codes that men impose on women, and women on themselves; the curious notions of honor that can dominate an isolated community; the irresistible impulse toward violence; and the psychology of mass complicity. Translated into English from the Spanish by Gregory Rabassa.
