Ein Roman aus dem Nachlass des großen Roberto Bolaño! Dieser frühe Roman, in dem man die Figuren aus Bolaños gefeiertem Werk Die wilden Detektive wiedererkennen mag, zeigt die Meisterschaft des jungen Autors: seine ungestüme Originalität und den eleganten Bruch mit Erzählkonventionen. Mexiko-Stadt in den Siebzigern: Die jungen Chilenen Remo Morán und Jan Schrella wohnen in einer schäbigen Mansarde und träumen vom Schreiben. Den bürgerlichen Werten entsagen sie, ihre Zeit ist der magische Moment zwischen Nacht und Tag. Während Remo sich rauschhaft treiben lässt, schreibt Jan unentwegt Briefe an seine Lieblings-Science-Fiction-Autoren, darunter Ursula K. Le Guin, Robert Silverberg und James Tiptree jr., mit der Bitte um Hilfe für sein von FBI und CIA unterdrücktes Lateinamerika. Bolaños unbekümmertes Übertreten aller Genregrenzen, seine literarische Spielfreude: In »Der Geist der Science-Fiction« ist schon alles angelegt, was aus Bolaño diesen Ausnahmeschriftsteller gemacht hat.

THE POSTHUMOUS MASTERWORK FROM "ONE OF THE GREATEST AND MOST INFLUENTIAL MODERN WRITERS" (JAMES WOOD, THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW) Composed in the last years of Roberto Bolaño's life, 2666 was greeted across Europe and Latin America as his highest achievement, surpassing even his previous work in its strangeness, beauty, and scope. Its throng of unforgettable characters includes academics and convicts, an American sportswriter, an elusive German novelist, and a teenage student and her widowed, mentally unstable father. Their lives intersect in the urban sprawl of SantaTeresa—a fictional Juárez—on the U.S.-Mexico border, where hundreds of young factory workers, in the novel as in life, have disappeared.

A tour de force, Amulet is a highly charged first-person, semi-hallucinatory novel that embodies in one woman's voice the melancholy and violent recent history of Latin America. Amulet is a monologue, like Bolano's acclaimed debut in English, By Night in Chile. The speaker is Auxilio Lacouture, a Uruguayan woman who moved to Mexico in the 1960s, becoming the "Mother of Mexican Poetry," hanging out with the young poets in the cafés and bars of the University. She's tall, thin, and blonde, and her favorite young poet in the 1970s is none other than Arturo Belano (Bolano's fictional stand-in throughout his books). As well as her young poets, Auxilio recalls three remarkable women: the melancholic young philosopher Elena, the exiled Catalan painter Remedios Varo, and Lilian Serpas, a poet who once slept with Che Guevara. And in the course of her imaginary visit to the house of Remedios Varo, Auxilio sees an uncanny landscape, a kind of chasm. This chasm reappears in a vision at the end of the book: an army of children is marching toward it, singing as they go. The children are the idealistic young Latin Americans who came to maturity in the '70s, and the last words of the novel are: "And that song is our amulet."
