    Álvaro Mutis

    Álvaro Mutis is indisputably one of the greatest Latin American writers of the 20th century, best known for creating Maqroll the Gaviero, a character forever searching for love and riches that he knows are ephemeral. Until now English-language readers enraptured by Maqroll have been unable to sample the poems in which he first appeared. This volume brings together for the first time in English, a selection Mutis’s surrealist-tinged, yet utterly sui generis poetical works.
