Aguilar returns home after a short business trip only to find that his wife, Agustina, has gone crazy. Having no idea what could have happened during his absence, and hoping to help her overcome this crisis, he begins to investigate. What he discovers are deep and disturbing facts hidden in the past of the woman he loves. Delirio is a story of love and madness, mysteries and secrets in the midst of the breakdown of Colombian society. Wonderfully constructed, magnificently narrated and brilliantly developed. Description in Spanish: Un hombre regresa a casa despues de un corto viaje de negocios y encuentra que su esposa ha enloquecido completamente. No tiene idea de que le ha podido ocurrir durante los tres dias de su ausencia, y con el fin de ayudarla a salir de la crisis empieza a investigar, solo para descubrir lo poco que sabe sobre las profundas perturbaciones escondidas en el pasado de la mujer que ama. Narrada con talento y emocion, la historia principal de esta novela se fragmenta en otras que se anudan a traves de personajes llenos de matices, y se cierra con un final bello y esperanzador, digno de un libro intenso y hermoso.

Review :

" "Delirium" is one of the finest novels written in recent memory. Laura Restrepo has a total mastery over what she writes, an astonishing but absolute mastery. Yes, there's violence, narcotraffic, madness, perhaps even love itself as a form of total madness. The important thing is that we're talking about a truly great novel, of a kind you seldom encounter anymore."
-- Jose Saramago
" Laura Restrepo breathes life into a singular amalgam of journalistic investigation and literary creation. Her fascination with popular culture and the play of her impeccable humor . . . save her novels from any temptation toward pathos or melodrama, and infuse them with unmistakable reading pleasures."
-- Gabriel Garci a Ma rquez
" Laura Restrepo' s "Delirium" has an aesthetic distinction worthy of her precursors Garci a Ma rquez and Saramago. Like them, her narrative sense of erotic derangement is elaborately nuanced. Ultimately she seems to me an authentic descendent of the greatest New World author and seer of eros, Walt Whitman."
-- Harold Bloom
" This beautiful and disturbing book haunted me during the days I read it and long after I put it down. Love, unknowability, loss, and even various forms of gain elide from one to another of its passionate, unnerving voices."
-- Vikram Seth
