Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The novel follows Amalfitano - exiled Chilean university professor and widower with a teenage daughter - as his political disillusionment and love of poetry lead to the scandal that will force him to flee from Barcelona and take him to Santa Teresa, Mexico. It is here, in this border town - haunted by dark tales of murdered women and populated by characters like Sorcha, who fought in the Andalusia Blue Division in the Spanish Civil War, and Castillo, who makes his living selling his forgeries of Larry Rivers paintings to wealthy Texans - that Amalfitano meets Arcimboldi, a magician and writer whose work highlights the provisional and fragile nature of literature and life.

Synopsis:

Exciting, lyrical and darkly humorous, this is Roberto Bolano's highly anticipated, last novel.

About the Author

He is the author of The Savage Detectives, which received the Herralde Prize and the Romulo Gallegos Prize, and 2666, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award. Bolano died in Blanes, Spain, at the age of fifty.
