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. The poet Chris Andrews has translated many books by Roberto Bolano and Cesar Aira for New Directions.


"Bolano crafts characters isolated from their surroundings and compellingly observing the humanity around them. Bolano's writing is reliably intriguing." -- Publishers Weekly "One of those rare writers who write for a future time. We have only begun to appreciate his strange, oblique genius." -- John Banville "It's a glimpse into the process of a totemic artistic figure." -- The A.V. Club "Paragraphs demand to be reread, because they give you the feeling that you've missed something. You did miss something, but you won't find it in the printed words. It's the space around the words where you'll find the answer." -- The Coffin Factory "Bolano succeeds in conjuring the unknowable empty spaces that an obsessive mind can imagine into the private lives of others." -- The Rumpus "Each of the tales boast an aspect of Bolano's prodigious talent: his ability to leap into a character's skin, quickly, with compelling confidence; or his facility for making sinister personalities and surreally uncomfortable situations feel all too plausible." -- Time Out New York
