The Secret of Evil, Paperback


Roberto Bolano confirmed his place as a giant of Latin American literature with his novels The Savage Detectives and 2666.

Included in this one-of-a-kind collection is everything he was working on just before his death in 2003.

A North American journalist in Paris is woken at 4 a.m. by a mysterious caller with urgent information. For V. S. Naipaul, the prevalence of sodomy in Argentina is a symptom of the nation's political ills.

Daniela de Montecristo (of Nazi Literature in the Americas and 2666) recounts the loss of her virginity.

Arturo Belano - Bolano's alter ego - returns to Mexico City and meets a band called The Asshole of Morelos.

Belano's son Geronimo disappears in Berlin during the Days of Chaos in 2005.

Memories of a return to the native land. Argentine writers as gangsters. Zombie schlock as allegory ...Opening The Secret of Evil is like being granted access to the Chilean master's personal files; it offers a final opportunity to read the work of an intense, brilliant and truly original writer.
