“The real thing and the rarest.” –Susan Sontag

“By writing across the grain of his doubts about what literature can do, how much it can discover or dare pronounce the names of our world’s disasters, Bolaño has proven it can do anything, and for an instant, at least, given a name to the unnamable.”
–Jonathan Lethem Roberto Bolaño (1950–2003) was a Chilean poet, novelist, and essayist. His translated work includes Amulet, By Night in Chile, Distant Star, Nazi Literature in the Americas, The Savage Detectives,2666, Last Evenings on Earth, The Romantic Dogs, and The Skating Rink. His last years were spent in Blanes, on Spain’s Mediterranean coast.

This little text is a treasure trove of Latin American literature. Bolano's enthusiasm for literature teams on every page of this brief collection of interviews, and it's a true testament of his passion as a writer. Bolano discusses his influences, his aesthetic sensibilities, and his strategies for writing. He emerges here as a magnificently devoted, and courageous artist who was happy just to be a participant in the world of literature. It is of course untimely and tragic that his immense gifts were cut short at the age of 50.

It's a short book that appears to have been put out to pick up the crowd surfing the Bolano wave. The initial essay focuses on Juarez and Bolano's interest in crime which is unfortunate since there is so much more to his life and work. The first interview with Soto and Bravo is excellent. Side notes state each mentioned author is basically one of the greatest South American writers; when they all become that great we become suspicious of the intent of the annotator. The second interview loses its spark, it's short without much substance, the third that appeared in the Mexican edition of Playboy is downright bad, with questions like "Did the girls in school pay any attention to you?" and "Did you collect figurines." The questions are so bland they and the answers bore the reader. Take your chances but don't expect much, which, given what we as readers want and what few books on Bolano are available, is a true shame.
