The enormous posthumous success of literary novelist, poet and essayist Roberto Bolano is one of the most stunning triumphs of Latin American literature. Shortly before he died in 2003, Bolano sat down with journalist Monica Maristain to discuss his work, his life and his passions in a long interview that is as caustic as it is whimsical, surreal and always brutally frank. Bolano's personal intensity, quick humour and erudition creates a superb read.

For a compilation of interviews in less than 130 pages it's interesting to see how 'dense' the outcome is. There are part in which reporters describe Bolano and the 'production' or 'creative process' of his output, including his final novel '2666' which hadn't come out during the time of the interviews, being his one of the first posthumous works of his published. This from someone who said he would rather have been a ('homicide(?)') detective than a writer, there is an abounding of references to 'Hispanic literati' with which after having read this book I have an impression that Bolano was deeply involved with. This being someone who apparently had dyslexia. In my opinion it *might* be a good primer before trying to engage with reading '2666'.
