The Savage Detectives

by Roberto Bolaño

It’s no exaggeration to call Bolaño a genius. The Savage Detectives alone should grant him immortality. ― Washington Post

The Savage Detectives

Winner of the Herralde Prize and the Rómulo Gallegos Prize. Natasha Wimmer’s translation of The Savage Detectives was chosen as one of the ten best books of 2007 by the Washington Post and the New York Times.

New Year’s Eve 1975, Mexico City. Two hunted men leave town in a hurry, on the desert-bound trail of a vanished poet.

Spanning two decades and crossing continents, theirs is a remarkable quest through a darkening universe – our own. It is a journey told and shared by a generation of lovers, rebels and readers. Their testimonies are woven together into one of the most dazzling Latin American novels of the twentieth century.
