About the Author
Roberto Bolaño was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1953. He grew up in Chile and Mexico City, where he was a founder of the Infrarealist poetry movement. His first full-length novel, The Savage Detectives, received the Herralde Prize and the Rómulo Gallegos Prize when it appeared in 1998. Roberto Bolaño died in Blanes, Spain, at the age of fifty.
The poet and translator Chris Andrews has won the Valle Inclan Prize and the French-American Translation Prize for his work.
Reviews
Nazi Literature in the Americas, a wicked invented encyclopedia of imaginary fascist writers and literary tastemakers, is Bolano playing with sharp, twisting knives. As if he were Borges's wisecracking, sardonic son, Bolano has meticulously created a tightly woven network of far-right litterateurs and purveyors of belles lettres for whom Hitler was beauty, truth, and the great lost hope.--Stacey D'Erasmo "The New York Times Book Review"
It is imaginative, full of a love for literature, and, unlikely as it may seem, exceptionally entertaining.--Michael Dirda "The Washington Post"
The wild inventiveness of Bolaño's evocations places them squarely in the realm of Borges--another writer who draws enormous power from the movement between the fictive and the real.-- "Publishers Weekly"
With his meticulous, expertly crafted idiosyncrasies Bolaño has created another universe here, a breathing, thriving world.--Ben Granger "Spike Magazine"
Masterfully executed...the book is wildly funny... [a] wickedly entertaining and evocative masterwork.--Robert Leiter "Jewish Exponent"
