Sinopsis: The first UK publication of the brilliant and innovative work that made Bolaño the most admired Spanish writer of his generation
'an extraordinary fantasia.' --The Independent
'Neither a novel nor a collection of stories, Nazi Literature in the Americas is the best and weirdest kind of literary game...Nazi Literature in the Americas is a chamber piece when compared with the proliferating grandeur of 2666 but it's a perfect example of this writer's unique mix of sincerity, humour, misdirection and occasional madness. This artful alternate history of modern literature, stitched together from loose ends, half-told stories and deft episodes of pastiche, is a strangely profound place to get lost.' -- Financial Times
'Bolaño's impressive novel triumphs by displaying a power of imagination and a quiddity we are not inclined to allow any of his imaginary writers.' --Observer
'Nazi Literature in the Americas, an encyclopedia of fictional right-wing writers, is not only Bolaño's most openly comic book but it is also his most explicit treatment of a theme that recurs with obsessive frequency throughout his entire fictional work - the complicity of the literary establishment in Latin America with political power...Nazi Literature in the Americas at first seems strangely anomalous for a Bolaño novel...But it is typical in one way: the humorous lightness of the writing belies depths of satirical complexity and agonized self-examination.' --Sunday Telegraph
'Mordantly funny and inventive writing from a real virtuoso.'
--Waterstone's Books Quarterly
'Extremely funny... Against a backdrop of dictatorship and terror, this is black humour indeed.'
'One of the most ingenious pieces of fiction since Bolaño's 2666.' --Shortlist
'Novel of the Week.' --The Week
'It is a darkly comic celebration of the wilder horizons of writing, good, plodding, lunatic and terrible.'
'In description, it sounds like satire and is has a dryness which could easily be mistaken for ironic humour. In fact, Bolaño's intentions are more sophisticated than that... Nazi Literature in the Americas takes what Bolaño knew very well and sends it through the looking glass of the ideological divide.' --Philip Hensher, Observer
