Description
Featuring several mass-murdering authors, two fraternal writers at the head of a football-hooligan ring, and a poet who crafts his lines in the air with sky writing, this 1996 novel from the author of 2666 and The Savage Detectives is constructed as a cavalcade of fictional Pan-American authors. Acerbically hilarious and remarkably inventive, it is the masterpiece that made Roberto Bolaño famous throughout the Spanish-speaking world.

"The best and weirdest kind of literary game.... This artful alternate history of modern literature, stitched together from loose ends, half-told stories and deft episodes of pastiche, is a strangely profound place to get lost."—Financial Times (London)

"One of the most exhilarating, intense and dangerous voices to emerge from South America.... [This book] is a parade of delusional, mediocre, vicious and pitiable poetasters, a scabrous parlor game that reveals much about literature, power and complicity. Very funny indeed."—Scotland on Sunday
