Amulet, Paperback Book

Description

Auxilio Lacouture is trapped. For twelve days she hides alone in a lavatory on the fourth floor of the university.

Staring at the floor, she begins a heartfelt and feverish tale: she is the Mother of Mexican poetry.A highly charged first-person semi-hallucinatory novel, Amulet is a potent stream of consciousness through which the poets of Mexico rage and swirl.

Filled with wild, dark literary prophecies, heroic poets, mad poets, artists `choked by the brilliance of youth', Auxilio's passionate narration - both heart-breaking and lyrical - is suffused with the essence of Roberto Bolano's art.
