Bolano Stories

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Mon, 11 Feb 2008 17:45:25 -0300 (CLST)

Apologies for the strong language in a couple of recent posts.  Looking at
the site it's been a bit excessive.

Anyway, to make up, here are some Bolaño stories...

Two Essays on Bolano

Date: Mon, 1 Dec 2008 19:27:36 -0300 (CLST)

This appears to be the "Borges and Bolano" essay by Aura Estrada -

Which is mentioned in this NYRB review of 2666 by Sarah Kerr -

Bolano + Sebald

From: "andrew cooke" <andrew@...>

Date: Sun, 7 Dec 2008 22:22:53 -0300 (CLST)

Interesting short essay that mentions both these writers (who are the two
people I've been reading most, recently, along with Borges, also
mentioned...).

I think it misses some important aspects of Bolano - there's a humour,
personal warmth and deprecation that's very attractive - but the comments
about Sebald were very useful (as were the remarks about Bolano's use of
language - something that probably helps explain Bolano and Borges both
appear, to me, so much more "modern").
