Description

With the release of Roberto Bolao's The Savage Detectives in 1998, journalist Monica Maristain discovered a writer ',capable of befriending his readers.' After exchanging several letters with Bolao, Maristain formed a friendship of her own, culminating in an extensive interview with the novelist about truth and consequences, an interview that turned out to be Bolao's last. Appearing for the first time in English, Bolao's final interview is accompanied by a collection of conversations with reporters stationed throughout Latin America, providing a rich context for the work of the writer who, according to essayist Marcela Valdes, is ',a T.S. Eliot or Virginia Woolf of Latin American letters.' As in all of Bolao's work, there is also wide-ranging discussion of the author's many literary influences. (Explanatory notes on authors and titles that may be unfamiliar to English-language readers are included here.) The interviews, all of which were completed during the writing of the gigantic 2666, also address Bolao's deepest personal concerns, from his domestic life and two young children to the realities of a fatal disease.
