Synopsis
Santa Teresa, on the Mexico-US border, is an urban sprawl that draws in lost souls. Among them are three academics on the trail of a reclusive German author; a New York reporter on his first Mexican assignment; a widowed philosopher; and a police detective in love with an elusive older woman. But there is darker side still to the town. It is an emblem of corruption, violence and decadence, and one from which, over the course of a decade, hundreds of women have mysteriously, often brutally, disappeared.Told in five parts, "2666" is the epic novel that defines one of Latin America's greatest writers and his unique vision of the modern world. Conceived on an astonishing scale, and - in the last years of Roberto Bolano's life - with burning, visionary commitment, it has been greeted across Europe and Latin America as his masterpiece, surpassing even his previous work in inventiveness, imagination, beauty and scope. 'A tour de force - though the phrase seems hardly adequate to describe the novel's narrative velocity, polyphonic range, inventiveness, and bravery' - "New York Review of Books". 'One of the giants of the post-Marquez era' - "Sunday Telegraph". 'One of the greatest and most influential modern writers' - James Wood.

 3.  Roberto Bolano
THE SAVAGE DETECTIVES UK First Edition + Promotional Bookmark
United Kingdom Picador 2007 0330445146 / 9780330445146 First edition, first printing Hardcover New, fine New, near fine Un-signed
First printing of the UK first edition. Full number-line 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2. The book is new and unread in fine condition. The dust-jacket does have some minor shelf wear.

This book is set during new year's eve, 1975. Arturo Belano and Ulises Lima, poets and leaders of a movement they call visceral realism, leave Mexico City in a borrowed white Impala. Their mission: to track down the poet Cesarea Tinajero, who disappeared into the Sonora desert - and obscurity - decades before. But the detectives are themselves hunted men, and their search for the past will end in violence, flight, and permanent exile.In this dazzling novel, Roberto Bolano tells the story of two modern-day Quixotes on a twenty-year, multi-continent, tragicomic quest through a darkening universe. 'A unique voice asserting the importance and exuberance of literature...Bolano writes with such elegance, verve and style and is so immensely readable. He makes you feel changed for having read him; he adjusts your angle of view on the world' - "Guardian". 'Part road movie, part joyful, nostalgic confession. A masterpiece' - "Daily Telegraph". 'Extraordinary ...A portrait of people for whom literature is bread and water, sex and death. The abiding message to be taken from Bolano's novel, and maybe from his fraught life, too: books matter' - "GQ".
