Amulet

Roberto bolaño

Amulet embodies in one woman’s voice the melancholy and violent history of Latin America. It begins: «This is going to be a horror story. A story of murder, detection and horror. But it won’t appear to be, for the simple reason that I am the teller. Told by me, it won’t seem like that. Although, in fact, it’s the story of a terrible crime.»
