One more voyage to the literary universe of Roberto Bolaño, an essential voice of Latin American literature.
Roberto Bolaño's boundless imagination and seemingly inexhaustible gift for shaping the chaos of his reality into enduring fiction is unmistakable in these three exhilarating novellas. In "Fatherland," a young poet reckons with the fascist overthrow of his country, as a friend disappears in the violence that ensues and a Third Reich fighter plane mysteriously writes her poetry in the sky overhead. In "French Comedy of Horrors," in the wake of an eclipse a seventeen year old answers a pay phone and finds himself recruited into the Clandestine Surrealist Group, a secret society of artists based in the sewers of Paris. And in the title novella, Arturo Belano--one of the recurring heroes of Bolaño's fiction--returns to Chile after the coup to fight for socialism.
Cowboy Graves is an unexpected treasure from the vault of a master of contemporary fiction. These three fiercely original tales bear the signatures of Bolaño's extraordinary body of work, echoing the strange characters and uncanny scenes of his fiction, while deepening our understanding of his profound gifts.
