Summary
"Winner of Chile's Literary Critics' Award for Best Novel"Hailed as a great Latin American literary event, this stylistically innovative, elliptically told tale of a young man and his love who mysteriously disappears is, as the narrator tells us, "a simple story that becomes complicated." Through both the distance and closeness of these young lovers, Alejandro Zambra brilliantly explores the relationship between art, love, and life. Bonsai is accessible yet profound--as one critic in Chile's Capital newspaper put it, "Brief as a sigh and forceful as a blow."
