Staff Reviews

This is Bolano’s first and, I feel, his most remarkable novel. he was only twenty-seven when he wrote it but it is the beginning of what ultimately becomes Bolano’s voice. It is an unconventional but brilliant murder mystery. It is a quick read but one of the few novels I read time and time again, always discovering and experiencing new and wonderful nuances. Now in paperback you can enjoy this amazing novel for cheap.

— Nick


Antwerp's fractured narration in 54 sections--voices from a dream, from a nightmare, from passers by, from an omniscient narrator, from "Roberto Bolano" all speak--moves in multiple directions and cuts to the bone.
