Description
Auxilio Lacouture is trapped. The Uruguayan poet, a minor character in Rómulo Gallegos Prize winner The Savage Detectives, hides alone for twelve days in a 4th-floor women's room of the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México after the army storms the building. Staring at the floor, she begins a heartfelt and feverish tale: she is the Mother of Mexican poetry. Roberto Bolaño's highly charged, semi-hallucinatory first-person novel is a potent stream of consciousness through which the poets of Mexico rage and swirl.

"[Bolaño's] work is the crossroads where Márquez meets Burroughs and Borges meets Mailer, resulting in a riotous dust-up."—John Banville

"A short, original, engaged and engaging novel; a good introduction to the longer works of this writer."—Times Literary Supplement
