Woes of the True Policeman

Woes of the True Policeman

Roberto Bolano

Taking us back to the world and characters of his acclaimed masterpiece, 2666, Woes of the True Policeman is Roberto Bolaño’s last, unfinished, novel.

Crushed by a devastating scandal, university professor Óscar Amalfitano flees Barcelona for Santa Teresa – a Mexican city close to the US border. In this sprawling town, where women are being killed in staggering numbers, Amalfitano begins an affair with Castillo, a young forger of Larry Rivers paintings, while his daughter, Rosa, reeling from the weight of his secrets, seeks solace in a romance of her own.

Featuring characters and stories from The Savage Detectives and 2666, Woes of the True Policeman explores the power of art, memory, and desire – and marks the culmination of one of the great careers of world literature.
