    This is a real oddity, very clever, ironic and satirical, hardly a novelan encyclopedia Basically it is a list of fascist and ultra right wing authors of the Americas Each one has a brief biography and analysis of their works, with their dates some don t pass away until the 2020s They are generally self deluded, often vicious, mostly mediocre and Bolano sends them all up remorselessly Their fictional biographies sometimes overlap with real li...

    In the one notorious Book in 2666, Bolano numbs his reader with one vignette of rape and murder after another They read like a police blotter In Nazi Literature in the Americas, one capsule biography of an extreme right wing writer follows another They read like encyclopedia entries There s an ostensible simplicity there but this is not just some mere exposition of cleverness I mean, it can t just be that, can it Whenev...
