"Even before his death two years ago at 50, Roberto Bolano was emerging as his generation's premier Latin American writer. But with the posthumous success of '2666,' an extravagantly encyclopedic novel that traverses two continents and eight decades, Bolano's reputation and legend are in meteoric ascent. ... Divided into five sections that Bolano first envisioned as separate novels, to be published one a year, "2666" begins with the hunt for a writer who has disappeared. But the search for the writer converges with the efforts of police confronting a serial killer who preys on female factory workers in a Mexican border town"

Poderoso, titánico, crudo, impactante, real, asombroso y maravilloso, ´´realismo trágico´´ en un libro de más de mil páginas.
Retrato duro del lado más oscuro del ser humano en los episodios de
feminicidios en Santa Teresa, misterios sin resolver.
Múltiples historias y escenarios, lugares, infinidad de personajes que convergen en una amalgama, la historia de Benno Von Archimboldi. Archimboldi, escritor perdido, pero no olvidado, la historia de la vida de un escritor octogenario, fuerte candidato al premio nobel.
Roberto Bolaño, sin duda nos deja un clásico, puede tacharse 2666 como inacabada, pero como la catedral barcelonesa, ´´La sagrada familia´´ de Antoni Gaudi, tiene sus bases y arquitectura definida, con todo y lo faltante, son unas verdaderas joyas, son perfectas al paso del tiempo. 2666 camina libre a la posteridad.

About the author (2004)

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.
