The Savage Detectives

Author(s): Roberto Bolano

Fiction - General

National BestsellerIn this dazzling novel, the book that established his international reputation, Roberto Bolano tells the story of two modern-day Quixotes--the last survivors of an underground literary movement, perhaps of literature itself--on a tragicomic quest through a darkening, entropic universe: our own. "The Savage Detectives "is an exuberant, raunchy, wildly inventive, and ambitious novel from one of the greatest Latin American authors of our age."
