De nada.(late response, I know, only looked at the post 'cos you said)About what we chatted about this afternoon - finally found the note sent by my friend PJ of University of Salamanca:"Mario Vargas Llosa singled out Bolano for comment in his recentacceptance speech for an honourary doctorate at the University of LaRioja, also singling out Los detectives salvajes, me parece, as a workwhose time has not yet perhaps come. Matthew must be a pretty coolbookseller to have such similar thoughts to such a great writer!"
Wow - nice note.You can tell your friend PJ I am blushing now...I did once meet Mario Vargas Llosa (whose books I also love) but I was totally star-struck and made a right tit of myself. He certainly didn't think he shared any thoughts with me - I think he thought I was insane! When I meet Mr Bolano (in hell) I'm sure we will get on.
