Un relato sobre los últimos representantes de una familia oligárquica venida a menos, en la que se intercala la trágica historia de los seguidores del general Lavalle que una vez derrotados llevaron el cuerpo muerto de su jefe al exilio. Por un lado, Martín y Alejandra, que viven una relación tortuosa y atormentada. incapaces de escapar a un turbio destino: la genética predisposición de la familia de ella a la locura. Por otro, la historia de un incesto brutal y la asfixiante atmósfera en la que se debaten sus protagonistas. Pero esta summa novelesca narra mucho más: Sobre héroes y tumbas cuenta la invención de una trama siniestra protagonizada por una apócrifa organización de ciegos y, además, la necesaria decisión de huir a la Patagonia en busca de una nueva oportunidad.

    " I am a Jorge Luis Borges fan for a quit long time, but this is one of the best Latin America fiction ever. Ernesto Sabato is a great writer and needless to say it is a fine read and page turner book. I was wondering why I did not read it before....give a try and you won't regret it. "
