Written with a burning intensity in the last years of Roberto Bolano’s life, 2666, was hailed throughout the world as the great writer of the masterpiece, overcoming all that in imagination, beauty and reach.It’s a novel on an astonishing scale of a passionate, visionary,Santa Teresa, on the Mexico-United States border: an urban sprawl that attracts lost souls like a wormhole.Convicted convicts and academics find themselves here, just like an American sports editor, a young student with his widowed and solitary father, lacking an author.But he’s a darker side of town.As in the real city of Juarez, on which Santa Teresa is founded, girls and women are disappearing at an alarming rate.As 2666 progresses, as the meaning of conspiracy develops, as the shadow of the apocalypse approaches, Santa Teresa becomes an emblem of the corruption, violence and decadence of Europe in the twentieth century of history.
