For Bolaño fans and writers of doctoral theses Dec 29, 2005
Jorge Herralde here collects a a number of his articles, eulogies and interviews about the late Roberto Bolaño, a writer whose profound talent he recognised before many others. The book offers some interesting insights into the relationship between the legendary publisher and and the Chilean writer but many of the texts are available elsewhere and the book lacks sufficent substance to justify its....erm... ambitious price tag. I recommend it for Bolaño fans who've already read every published word by the "detective salvaje". Everyone else should start reading him now.
