This bilingual collection of forty-four poems presents English readers with their first chance to encounter the phenomenon of Roberto Bolano as a poet: his own preferred and strongest literary persona. (When asked, 'What makes you believe that you're a better poet than a novelist?' Bolano replied, 'The poetry makes me blush less.') These poems intimate, moving, witty and wide-ranging are as diverse in form as his fiction and will offer the reader equal delight.
