Masterpiece, best novel written in Spanish in the past 20 years. Bola񯧳 death was tragic. His "supernovel", 2066 (five novels in one), is extraordinary, too. His work does not exactly fit here except for a novel he wrote with A.G.Porta (I forget the title), which is pure noir. Still, a great literary voice. I don't know what works of his are translated.
