A Load of Bolano
Someone sent me a link to this article in the New Yorker about Roberto Bolano.
The Savage Detectives is one of the best books I have read so far this year...
Two comments by Mr Bolano particularly caught my attention:
"Bolaño’s fury toward the literary mainstream—deeply felt and bordering on puerile" - remind you of anyone?
And he called Isabel Allende a “scribbler” whose “attempts at literature range from kitsch to the pathetic.”
