RaveThe Washington PostNot since Gabriel García Márquez...has a Latin American redrawn the map of world literature so emphatically as Roberto Bolaño does with The Savage Detectives ... [he has] such a flamboyant, stylistically distinctive, counter-establishment voice that it\'s no exaggeration to call him a genius ... The Savage Detectives alone should grant him immortality. It\'s an outstanding meditation on art, truth and the search for roots and the self ... The classics are often imperfect, and The Savage Detectives, though inexhaustible, is messy and perhaps overly ambitious. Only one thing matters: Bolaño had the courage to look at the world anew.
