Roberto Bolaño

Twentieth-century Chilean poet and novelist

Wonderfully unreserved.

—Sarah Kerr, The New York Review of Books

They radiate the audacity of the intellect, as well as the cruelty of vision, that have won their author a devoted following.

Boston Review

Peers at the infinite through compelling, surreal and cinematic poems … beautiful.

The Faster Times

Bolano teeters on the brink of fantasy, but without ever detaching himself from a concrete, material world of pain and pleasure.

—Will Heyward, *The Australian *

It’s a book that illuminates the personal struggle behind one of the great literary careers of our times, a career that has come to define a global literary aesthetic.

The Los Angeles Times

Bolaño was hungry, this book reminds you, for just about everything.

—Dwight Garner, The New York Times

Its most recent poems were written fifteen years after its earliest, and many of these newer ones remind us of all the reasons why Bolaño is such a fantastic writer, one of the best of our times.
