Yesterday, I was told that I need to read Bolaño because he is a Chilean novelist with a Mexican style lingering in his writing.

Roberto Bolaño was a Chilean novelist and poet.

  • Metaphors are our way of losing ourselves in semblances or treading water in a sea of seeming.
    Roberto Bolaño, 2666
  • So everything lets us down, including curiosity and honesty and what we love best. Yes, said the voice, but cheer up, it’s fun in the end.
    Roberto Bolaño, 2666

In 1968 he moved with his family to Mexico City, dropped out of school, worked as a journalist, and became active in left-wing political causes.
