Description
The expatriate Chilean writer who gave us The Savage Detectives and the National Book Critics Circle Award winner 2666, the late Roberto Bolaño continues to astound the English-speaking world as translations of his works emerge. The Skating Rink, rife with political corruption, sex, jealousy, and obsession, is a darkly atmospheric chronicle of one summer season in a seaside town on Spain's Costa Brava. The story revolves around the beautiful figure skating champion Nuria Martí and the private rink secretly built for her by a besotted admirer. But the rink becomes a crime scene, and Nuria's story unfolds in short, suspenseful chapters by three male narrators.

"This short exquisite novel ... manages to honor genre conventions while simultaneously exploding them, creating a work of intense and unrealized longing."—NYTimes
