Three teachers at the path of a reclusive German writer; a brand new York reporter on his first Mexican task; a widowed thinker; a police detective in love with an elusive older woman--these are one of the searchers attracted to the border urban of Santa Teresa, the place over the process a decade enormous quantities of girls have disappeared.

In the phrases of The Washington Post, "With 2666, Roberto Bolaño joins the formidable overachievers of the twentieth-century novel, these like Proust, Musil, Joyce, Gaddis, Pynchon, Fuentes, and Vollmann, who push the unconventional a long way earlier its traditional measurement and scope to surround a complete period, deploying encyclopedic wisdom and stylistic verve to supply a grand, if occasionally idiosyncratic, summation in their tradition and the novelist's position in it. Bolaño has joined the immortals."
