The Skating Rink by Roberto Bolaño

Throw in obsession, political hieloo, immigration, poets, a seaside resort on the Costa Brava, a homeless opera singer, an Olympic skater, a ruined mansion, the influence of Borges, a secret skating rink, a love triangle and lots of individual oddities.

All the characters feel real and fully drawn, and as is always the case with Bolano, the prose is brilliant, unsettling, dream-like, and really sticks with you after you have closed the pages of the book.

A mysterious pair of women, an ex-opera singer and a taciturn girl often armed with a knife, turn up as well.
