"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.”

Here. This is for your quest, Shadow. *she sets down a little container with liquid inside.* Drink it when you need strength.
I've read this book countless times since first coming across it in Spanish -- it's deceptively simple, and almost too charming at first, but it gradually grows in completely unexpected directions, and by the end it's become something breathtaking. This is one of those books that you won't forget, in a beautiful translation. Buy it for yourself, and a few extra copies for friends, as you'll want to pass it on.
