Woes of the True PolicemanBook - 2012
Begun in the 1980s and worked on until the author's death in 2003, this is Roberto Bolano's last, unfinished novel. The novel follows Amalfitano - an exiled Chilean university professor and widower with a teenage daughter - as his political disillusionment and love of poetry lead to the scandal that will force him to flee from Barcelona and take him to Santa Teresa, Mexico. A kaleidoscopic novel, lyrical and intense, yet darkly humorous.
