The Last Interview and Other Conversations - Roberto Bolaño, Mónica Maristain, Marcela Valdes, Sybil Perez, Tom McCartan

I decided to re-read this one in anticipation of Bolaño’s Between Parentheses: Essays, Articles and Speeches, 1998-2003 says of Bolaño: In his literary beginnings, in Mexico City, he led the foundation of the Infrarrealistas (the ones he calls Visceral Realists in his novel The Savage Detectives have been had the author lived? What might have come next for Bolaño?

The Introduction (Alone among the Ghosts by Marcela Valdes) is well worth the price of admission, the uncompiled bibliography (gleaned from the sidenotes) is compelling, and any time with RB is time well-spent.
