Publisher: New York City, NY: New Directions, 2012
Book Condition: Fine
Dust Jacket Condition: Fine
Edition: 1st Edition.
1st Printing. 145 pages. Published in 2012. Collection of the author's unfinished writings. One of the most significant literary events of our time. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The book also marks the very first collaboration between Chris Andrews and Natasha Wimmer, Roberto Bolano's indefatigable (and heroic) translators in English. Presents Roberto Bolano's "The Secret of Evil" in a felicitous English translation. It is the ultimate posthumous tribute to Roberto Bolano's genius, a collection of fragments, unfinished pieces he left behind that were found in his computer after his death. That they ostensibly "extend the intricate, single web that is the work of Roberto Bolano" does not mean they cohere, but rather that Bolano's devoted readers have to have in published form every last scrap of paper Bolano wrote on. Considering how much Roberto Bolano now means to contemporary literature, they are not wrong to be so loyal and grateful. "The real thing and the rarest" (Susan Sontag). An absolute "must-have" title for Roberto Bolano collectors. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few copies of the First American Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. One of the greatest writers of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERTO BOLANO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0811218155. Bookseller Inventory # 17284
