9780330510530: Skating Rink

'Gripping, easy to read, sometimes funny and extraordinarily romantic ...High praise' Independent on Sunday When Nuria Marti, the beautiful Spanish figure skater, is suddenly dropped from the Olympic team, a besotted admirer builds a secret ice rink for her in the ruins of an old mansion on the outskirts of their seaside town. What he doesn't tell her is that he paid for it using embezzled public funds. Such deceit is not without repercussions, and the skating rink soon becomes a crime scene ...Rife with political corruption, sex, jealousy and frustrated passion, The Skating Rink -- narrated in turn by a corrupt and pompous civil servant, a beleaguered romantic poet, and a duplicitous local entrepreneur -- is a darkly atmospheric tale of murder and its motives. 'This magnificent murder mystery ...is wrought with voices of great urgency and yet penned with a delectable lightness of touch' List 'Elegant, elusive and amusing, this novel is more than capable of standing alongside the rest of Bolano's work' Daily Telegraph

About the Author:

Roberto Bolano was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1953. He grew up in Chile and Mexico City. His novel, The Savage Detectives was chosen as one of the ten best books of 2007 by the Washington Post and the New York Times Book Review. His posthumous masterpiece, 2666, won the National Book Critics Circle Award.

Review:

This short, exquisite novel is another unlikely masterpiece, as sui generis as all his books so far...Bolano in The Skating Rink manages to honor genre conventions while simultaneously exploding them, creating a work of intense and unrealized longing. -- Wyatt Mason

One of the strangest mysteries...with its dark-summer heat that all but comes off the page. -- Marilis Hornidge

When I read Bolano, I think: everything is possible again....How he makes one laugh! The laughter of someone who just escaped being buried live, and suddenly remembers how badly she wants to live. -- Nicole Krauss, author of The History of Love

Lucid fury . . . is a pretty good description of Bolano's aesthetic. He is a novelist of voraciousness without sentiment, hardness to a fever pitch. -- Todd Shy

A highly engaging novel of lyricism, menace and beauty. -- James Yeh

Darkly funny, but also tender and complex in the tenor of classic Bolano novels. -- Savannah ("Savvy") Jones

This is pure Bolaño.

This is pure Bolano.

This is pure Bolano. "

There is much intensity at work, although The Skating Rink leavens the melancholy of exile with an interest in the uncanny and a knack for the surrealist image. --Siddhartha Deb ""Books of the Year" ""

Exquisite . . . another unlikely masterpiece, as sui generis as all his books so far. The Skating Rink manages to honor genre conventions while simultaneously exploding them, creating a work of intense and unrealized longing. --Wyatt Mason"
