A novel that spans several generations and continents, exploring the complexities of human experience through a wide array of characters.

2666 is a posthumous novel by Roberto Bolaño, published in 2004. Composed in the last years of Roberto Bolaño's life, it was greeted across Europe and Latin America as his highest achievement. The book covers a vast array of characters and settings, including academics, convicts, an American sportswriter, and an elusive German novelist, as they intersect in the urban sprawl of SantaTeresa—a fictional representation of Ciudad Juárez, on the U.S.-Mexico border, where hundreds of young factory workers have disappeared.
