Amberes

Amberes
$15.00
Descrita por el propio autor como una obra policíaca, aunque no lo parezca, Amberes fue redactada veintidós años antes de su primera publicación en 2002, y descubre al Roberto Bolaño más experimental y complejo.

A caballo entre la narrativa y la prosa poética, Amberes se compone de 56 fragmentos, 56 balas perdidas cuyo objetivo permanece oculto al lector. Como pequeños fogonazos sin orden ni concierto que solamente insinúan la existencia de una luz más cegadora, los recuerdos y divagaciones que, en voz de distintos personajes --vivos y muertos--, llenan estas páginas, nos hablan de jorobados, drogas, prostitutas, películas, escritores sin palabras, asesinatos, asesinos y asesinados.
Bamboleándose entre ficción y realidad, entre cordura y locura, el lector se enfrenta a un caso en un tablero con todas las piezas, pero sin ninguna garantía de que tenga solución.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Bolaño's radical first novel.

Written when he was only twenty-seven, Antwerp can be viewed as the Big Bang of Roberto Bolaño's fictional universe. This novel presents the genesis of Bolano's enterprise in prose; all the elements are here, highly compressed, at the moment when his talent explodes. From this springboard―which Bolaño chose to publish in 2002, twenty years after he'd written it ("and even that I can't be certain of")―as if testing out a high dive, he would plunge into the unexplored depths of the modern novel.

Voices speak from a dream, from a nightmare, from passersby, from an omniscient narrator, from "Roberto Bolano." Antwerp's fractured narration in fifty-four sections moves in multiple directions and cuts to the bone.
