Description
This short novel is vintage Roberto Bolaño, intensified and distilled. As his friend and literary executor Ignacio Echevarría once suggested, it can be viewed as the "big bang" of Bolaño's fictional universe: all the elements are here, highly compressed, at the moment when his talent explodes. Each tightly focused chapter is like a prose poem, and from this springboard (which Bolaño chose not to publish until 2002, more than 20 years after he'd written it) he plunged into the unexplored depths of the modern novel for which he is now revered. Spliced into this experimental crime novel, set on the Costa Brava, are voices from a dream, from a nightmare, from passers-by, from an omniscient narrator, and from a character named Roberto Bolaño.
