Books Info:

The Skating Rink free pdf 'Readers who have snacked on a writer such as Haruki Murakami will feast on Roberto Bolano' Sunday Times 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. 'Bolano writes with such elegance, verve and style and is immensely readable' Guardian 'His fiction was hallucinatory, haunting and experimental' Times Literary Supplement
