Bolano, Roberto (Author) & Wimmer, Natasha (Translator). THE THIRD REICH: A NOVEL. New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2011. Hardcover. First Edition/First Printing. 277 pages. As New/As New.

Scarce Roberto Bolano collectible set. Pristine copies of the First American and First British Editions. Posthumous publication of the author's unpublished novel. One of the most significant literary events of our time. The first appearance of the title in the United States and the United Kingdom as a book, the American being a hardcover and the British, a softcover original. The novel first appeared in four consecutive installments in The Paris Review. Presents Roberto Bolano's "El Tercer Reich". Discovered among Bolano's papers in 2009, he wrote it in 1989 yet never published it in his lifetime. Why he did not will remain a mystery because it is a brilliant, "vintage-quintessential" Bolano piece. "From the first sentence, the novel bears his hallmarks. The irony, the atmosphere of erotic anxiety, the dream logic shading into nightmare, the feckless, unreliable narrator; all prefigure his later work. The young novelist must have been exhilarated, and possibly alarmed, to discover his talent so fully formed" (Lorin Stein). "Bolano makes you feel changed for having read him; he adjusts your angle of view on the world" (The London Guardian). "When I read Bolano I think: Everything is possible again" (Nicole Krauss). A "must-have" title for Roberto Bolano collectors. This title is a contemporary classic. As far as we know, this is the only such set of the First American Hardcover and First British Softcover Original Editions available online and has no flaws, pristine beauties. A very scarce set thus. One of the greatest writers of our time. A flawless set. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERTO BOLANO TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374275629. $100.00
