Santa Teresa, on the Mexico-US border, is an urban sprawl that draws in lost souls. An emblem of corruption, violence and decadence, from which, over the course of a decade, hundreds of women have mysteriously, often brutally, disappeared. Told in five parts, 2666 is the epic novel that defines one of Latin America's greatest writers and his unique vision of the modern world. Conceived on an astonishing scale, and - in the last years of Roberto Bolaño's life … mehr- with burning, visionary commitment, it has been greeted as his masterpiece, surpassing even his previous work in inventiveness, imagination, beauty and scope.
