January Meetup—Savage Detectives

The Savage Detectives: A Novel by Roberto Bolano

In this dazzling novel, the book that established his international reputation, Roberto Bolaño tells the story of two modern-day Quixotes--the last survivors of an underground literary movement, perhaps of literature itself--on a tragicomic quest through a darkening, entropic universe: our own. The Savage Detectives is an exuberant, raunchy, wildly inventive, and ambitious novel from one of the greatest Latin American authors of our age.

    I was looking for a good book club near where I live for so long. I'm glad I found this group. What's the agenda for January 28th gathering?

      Hi Soudi. We are reading The Savage Detectives by Roberto Bolaño for the Jan. 28 meetup. Our group is very casual and easygoing. We typically start out with a broad discussion of our thoughts on the book and then I bring a set of questions to move the conversation along. Looking forward to meeting you!
