The Secret of Evil

by Roberto Bolano - £9.99  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2015)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780330510660 | ISBN 10: 0330510665

Roberto Bolaño confirmed his place as a giant of Latin American literature with his novels The Savage Detectives and 2666. Included in this one-of-a-kind collection is everything he was working on just before his death in 2003.
 
A North American journalist in Paris is woken at 4 a.m. by a mysterious caller with urgent information. For V. S. Naipaul, the prevalence of sodomy in Argentina is a symptom of the nation's political ills. Daniela de Montecristo (of Nazi Literature in the Americas and 2666) recounts the loss of her virginity. Arturo Belano - Bolaño's alter ego - returns to Mexico City and meets a band called The Asshole of Morelos. Belano's son Gerónimo disappears in Berlin during the Days of Chaos in 2005. Memories of a return to the native land. Argentine writers as gangsters. Zombie schlock as allegory...
 
Opening The Secret of Evil is like being granted access to the Chilean master's personal files; it offers a final opportunity to read the work of an intense, brilliant and truly original writer.
