About the Author

Author of 2666 and many other acclaimed works, Roberto Bolano (1953-2003) was born in Santiago, Chile, and later lived in Mexico, Paris, and Spain. He has been acclaimed "by far the most exciting writer to come from south of the Rio Grande in a long time" (Ilan Stavans, The Los Angeles Times)," and as "the real thing and the rarest" (Susan Sontag). Among his many prizes are the extremely prestigious Herralde de Novela Award and the Premio Rómulo Gallegos. He was widely considered to be the greatest Latin American writer of his generation. He wrote nine novels, two story collections, and five books of poetry, before dying in July 2003 at the age of 50.
The poet and translator Chris Andrews has won the Valle Inclan Prize and the French-American Translation Prize for his work.

Reviews

A rare and precious collection.... [It] transports you on as many tiny, immersive vacations as there are stories in the book.
Bolaño has joined the immortals.
Bolaño has proven [literature] can do anything.--Jonathan Lethem
