Bolano's highly praised final novel, translated from the Spanish by Natasha Wimmer. Originally published in Chile in 2004, this is the first English translation and precedes the UK edition. 8vo glossy pictorial paperwraps with titling spanning the spines of all three volumes. Near fine with only a touch of minor wear; in very good to near fine slipcase with few small creases and tears.
