In this dazzling novel, the book that established his international reputation, Roberto Bolano tells the story of two modern-day Quixotes--the last survivors of an underground literary movement, perhaps of literature itself--on a tragicomic quest through a darkening, entropic universe: our own. "The Savage Detectives "is an exuberant, raunchy, wildly inventive, and ambitious novel from one of the greatest Latin American authors of our age.
Natasha Wimmer s translation of Roberto Bolano s 2666 won the National Book Award s Best Novel of the Year as well as the PEN Prize.
