Description and Biographies

     The Savage Detectives is an exuberant, wildly inventive and ambitious novel from one of the greatest Latin American authors of our age. The late Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño has been called the García Marquez of his generation.
     In this dazzling novel, the book that established his international reputation, Bolaño 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.
     Brilliantly rendered into English by Natasha Wimmer, the acclaimed translator of Bolaño’s other great masterwork, 2666. (also available here at www.MundoHablado.com)

     New York Times: "Wildly enjoyable....Bolaño beautifully manages to keep his comedy and his pathos in the same family."
     Publishers Weekly: "This novel will allow English speaking readers to discover a truly great writer... There are copious, and acidly hilarious, references to the Latin American literary scene, and one needn’t be an insider to get the jokes... Bolaño fashions an engrossing lost world of youth and utopian ambition, as particular and vivid as it is sad and uncontainable."
    
Bookmarks Magazine: "By turns humorous and sad, this literary mystery also affirms the value of literature and serves as a modern history of the Latin American literary scene... inventive and entertaining."
    
Vogue: "Roberto Bolaño’s masterwork...confirms this Chilean’s status as Latin America’s literary enfant terrible."
