The Tunnel by Ernesto Sábato

The book in question is a psychological thriller that delves into the mind of a painter who becomes obsessively infatuated with a woman he barely knows. His unrequited love and spiraling madness lead him down a dark path of existential angst, culminating in a shocking act of violence. The narrative unfolds through the artist's perspective, as he reflects on his actions and the alienation he feels from society, revealing the depths of his troubled psyche and his struggle to find meaning in an indifferent world.
