Summary: Roberto Bolano's Tres is a showcase of the author's willingness to freely cross genres, with poems in prose, stories in verse, and flashes of writing that can hardly be categorized. As the title implies, the collection is composed of three sections. Prose from Autumn in Gerona, a cinematic series of prose poems, slowly reveals a subtle and emotional tale of unrequited love by presenting each scene, shattering it, and piecing it all back together, over and over again. The second part, more The Neochileans, is a sort of On the Road in verse, which narrates the travels of a young Chilean band on tour in the far reaches of their country. Finally, the collection ends with a series of short poems that take us on A Stroll Through Literature and remind us of Bolano's masterful ability to walk the line between the comically serious and the seriously comical. less

New York City, NY 2011 Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 175 pages. As New in As New dust jacket. Retrospective collection of poems and prose-poems. One of the most beautiful collections by moreRoberto Bolano. The first appearance of the title in English and in the United States. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents the second posthumously published collection of poems and prose-poems by Roberto Bolano, in felicitous English translations by Laura Healy (she also translated the first one, "Romantic Dogs"). Meticulously edited, this so-called Bilingual Edition (the Spanish original on the left-hand page, the English translation on the right) follows the now-mandatory presentation of poetry in translation. We do not expect prose works, in contrast, to be bilingual because it would mean too many pages and would be too cumbersome even though in princi less
