Reseña del editor: Sobre héroes y tumbas es una novela escrita por el escritor argentino Ernesto Sabato, y es quizá la obra más conocida del autor. Publicada en 1961, ésta irrumpe en el panorama de la literatura latinoamericana aglutinando una variedad de elementos que la distinguen entre las ficciones de América del Sur. De este modo, es frecuentemete considerada como una novela total, con rasgos de surrealismo inusitados en la literatura latinoamericana (especialmente en la sección de "El Informe sobre ciegos"). Buena parte de su trama puede insertarse también en la tradición de la Bildungsroman ("novela de formación") de la que se cuentan varios ejemplos en la literatura alemana. Por otro lado, la descripción de una familia retratada a través de una largo lapso temporal con tintes decadentes, emparenta temáticamente esta novela con las ficciones de Faulkner y García Márquez.
