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
Bolano has joined the immortals.
A once-in-a-blue-moon rhapsodic reading experience. --Johnathan Lethem
Bola o has joined the immortals.
Bola o was no political pamphleteer. And yet his characters' angst and desires play out against the canvas of history. With his raw, barely controlled emotions, and a talent for mining the pathos, beauty, and even humor amid the horror of ordinary life, his fiction soared. --Mac Margolis (04/16/2012)
Bola o succeeds in conjuring the unknowable empty spaces that an obsessive mind can imagine into the private lives of others.
Poetry is dangerous; that's the message.

One of those rare writers who write for a future time. We have only begun to appreciate his strange, oblique genius. --John Banville"
