The late Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño has been called the García Marquez of his generation.

The Savage Detectives is a hilarious and sexy, meandering and melancholy, companionable and complicated road trip through Mexico City, Barcelona, Israel, Liberia, and finally the desert of northern Mexico. It is the first of Bolaño's two giant works, with 2666, to be translated into English and is already being hailed as a masterpiece. Download and start listening now!

    " To read about a duel at a beach between a critic and a writer is worth every other sentence in this work. Informative?-not much: Transformative absolutely - art in its most enlightening rendering. "

    " I must confess that this is not among the greatest books I have read; it is incredibly slow, lacking a clear narrative and told from a very male perspective. Still, it is like nothing else and inspired me to read 2666, which is the reason I give it an extra star above the 3 that it really deserved. "
