Deux mille six cent soixante-six

Portada
Ed. Anagrama, 2008 - 1125 páginas
The novel is divided into five parts (Bolano originally imagined it being published as five books) and begins with the adventures and love affairs of a small group of scholars dedicated to the work of Benno von Archimboldi, a reclusive German novelist. They trace the writer to the Mexican border town of Santa Teresa (read: Juarez), but there the trail runs dry, and it isn't until the final section that readers learn about Benno and why he went to Santa Teresa. This is considered one of the best novels of this Century.

This book was written in 5 parts. The fourth was the longest part and it was extremely hard to get through. Graphic murder after graphic murder. I enjoyed the other parts though and can see with its sweeping scope why it is included as one of the 1001 books to read. Leer reseña completa

Sobre el autor (2008)

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.
