WINNER OF THE XXV HERRALDE NOVEL PRIZE

Moral Sciences takes place in an elite and traditional school in Buenos Aires at the beginning of the 1980s, during the final phase of the Argentine dictatorship. Inside the thick walls of the school, a strict and sterile discipline prevails, an ironfisted morality which the students must pay attention to in every facet of their lives. A school and historical moment of the country where all is prohibited, and everything is a transgression.

“A perfect example of how the truth can emerge from sordid humor

and narrative tension without becoming entangled in rhetoric.”

J.A. Masoliver Ródenas, CULTURA|S, LA VANGUARDIA
