Auxilio Lacouture is trapped. For twelve days she hides alone in a lavatory on the fourth floor of the university. Staring at the floor, she begins a heartfelt and feverish tale: she is the Mother of Mexican poetry.A highly charged first-person semi-hallucinatory novel, Amulet is a potent stream of consciousness through which the poets of Mexico rage and swirl. Filled with wild, dark literary prophecies, heroic poets, mad poets, artists `choked by the brilliance of youth', Auxilio's passionate narration - both heart-breaking and lyrical - is suffused with the essence of Roberto Bolano's art.
Roberto Bolano was born in Santiago, Chile, in 1953. He spent much of his adult life in Mexico and in Spain, where he died at the age of fifty. In 2008 he won the National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction with his posthumously published masterpiece, 2666.
