I had heard about this book back in 2008, when I was really beginning to get in to literature. I recently picked it up, and I am glad I did. As far as literary books are concerned, this is one of the most engaging that I have ever read. It's a fast paced, existential look at the literary underground of Mexico and the world at large. Following two main characters through the eyes of their companions and acquaintances, each with a unique and unmistakable voice of their own, It tells of their journey to the unknown center of Mexican poetry and life itself.
