This is the first collection by the universally acclaimed Chilean author to be published in English and it is an outstanding introduction to Bolano's writing. Bolano's narrators are grappling with their own private quests while living in the margins, on the edges, in constant flight from nightmarish threats. His stories are often witty, frequently melancholy and always original.

"The most influential and admired novelist of his generation in the Spanish-speaking world" -- Susan Sontag "This may be the most haunting and mesmerising collection I have ever read" Daily Telegraph "A book full of insight for writers and aficionados of South American literature and culture" Scotland on Sunday "It is a shame that Bolano has no more evenings on earth, his unique voice asserting the importance and exuberance of literature will be sorely missed" Guardian "Bolano's language, alert and always graceful, his way of constructing narratives that are simultaneously disconcerting, brilliant and infinitely immediate, is a form of resisting evil, adversity and mediocrity" Le Monde
