Staff Reviews

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.

In this dazzling novel which established his reputation as the Garca Marquez of his generation, Robert Bolao tells the story of two modern-day Quixotesthe last survivors of an underground literary movement, perhaps of literature itselfon a tragicomic quest through a darkening, entropic universe.
