The Return - Roberto Bolaño, Chris Andrews Thirteen wondrous short stories of returns—the return to a native land, the desire to return to family or country, return to the scene of the crime, returning to life, or not-life, returns of every imagining—thirteen stories for the Bolaño fan or those new to his work. Readers familiar with Bolaño might wonder when New Directions will finally publish everything extant by the author, as indeed they must, but if you’re wondering if the best of his works have already been translated and published (as some readers of Antwerp have wondered), this collection should put those concerns to rest; this is a great collection and well-worth the time spent reading and thinking about these stories. If you haven’t read Bolaño for a while, return with this one; if you’ve never read the author, this is a great collection to begin one’s returns.
