Description
Uno de los 10 libros del ano del
"New York Times Book Review"
Cuatro academicos tras la pista de un enigmatico escritor aleman; un periodista de Nueva York en su primer trabajo en Mexico; un filosofo viudo; un detective de policia enamorado de una esquiva mujer --estos son algunos de los personajes arrastrados hasta la ciudad fronteriza de Santa Teresa, donde en la ultima decada han desaparecido cientos de mujeres.
Publicada postumamente, la ultima novela de Roberto Bolano no solo es su mejor obra y una de las mejores del siglo XXI, sino uno de esos excepcionales libros que trascienden a su autor y a su epoca para formar parte de la literatura universal.



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 Romulo 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.
