After the death of his father, Julián inherits Las Zanjas, a room that he occupies with bewilderment and joy. Guarded by the greyhounds Corsario and Chispa, Julián and his girlfriend, Lisa, build a house, plant trees, ride the marshlands and love each other without knowing that the evil that stirs love does not roam outside, but nests inside one. As the indolent Julian perseveres in his poignant efforts to become a modern rancher, his melancholic temperament and the influence of his family become a drag that numbs his life and affections. The adventures unleashed by the change take the protagonist to Paris and then back to Buenos Aires, in a world that seems to have no place for him, eventually running fast like the beloved greyhounds.

Published in 1968, Los galgos, los galgos is Sara Gallardo's most awarded and successful novel and is considered the peak of her narrative maturity. An unforgettable love story and a vigorous social portrait that has earned a prominent place in Argentine literature. Here concludes the series of novels that began with Enero (1958) and continued with Pantalones azules (1963), and anticipates the change of direction of his future literature.
