"Roberto Bolaño's masterpiece is an utterly unique achievement—a modern epic rich in character and event. . . . [He is] the most important writer to emerge from Latin America since García Márquez."—The San Francisco Chronicle

The New York Times - Richard Eder

The key to Mr. Bolaņo s work is an insistence that the writer must keep no scrim of art or craft between him and the brute reality of the world he lives in and addresses. If there is a theme that runs through the complex, numbingly chaotic and sinuously memorable Savage Detectives, his first long (very long) novel, it is that the pen is as blood-stained as the sword, and as compromised.
