The enormous posthumous success of novelist, poet and essayist Roberto Bola¨o is one of the most stunning triumphs in the history of Latin American literature. His masterpiece 2666 (Picador, 2009) has startled the literary world and seen him become one of the most successful talents to emerge from Latin America and be regarded as the most important Spanish-speaking writer to emerge since Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Shortly before his death, he was interviewed by Monica Maristain to discuss his work, life and passions in an expansive, brutally frank interview.

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'.
