In this psychological novel of obsessive love, artist Juan Pablo Castel recounts from his prison cell the story of María Iribarne. Obsessed from the moment he sees her examining one of his paintings, he fantasizes for months about how they might meet again. When he happens upon her one day, a relationship develops that convinces him of their mutual love. But his growing paranoia leads him to destroy the one thing he cares about.
