Featuring several mass-murdering authors, two fraternal writers at the head of a football-hooligan ring and a poet who crafts his lines in the air with sky writing, Nazi Literature in the Americasdetails the lives of a rich cast of characters from one of the most extraordinarily fecund imaginations in world literature. Written with acerbic wit and virtuosic flair, this encyclopaediccavlacade of fictional pan-American authors is the terrifyingly humorous and remarkably inventive masterpiece which made Bolano famous throughout the Spanish-speaking world. 'One of the most exhilarating, intense and dangerous voices to emerge from South America . . . [ Nazi Literature in the Americas] is a parade of delusional, mediocre, vicious and pitiable poetasters, a scabrous parlour game that reveals much about literature, power and complicity. Very funny indeed.' Scotland on Sunday 'The triumphant posthumous entrance of Roberto Bolano into the English-language literary firmament has been one of the sensations of the decade.' Sunday Times 'The best and weirdest kind of literary game . . . This artful alternate history of modern literature, stitched together from loose ends, half-told stories and deft episodes of pastiche, is a strangely profound place to get lost.' Financial Times
