Roberto Bolano, a Less Distant Star : Critical Essays Hardback

Edited by Ignacio Lopez-Calvo

Part of the Literatures of the Americas series


Roberto Bolano has attained an almost mythical stature and is often considered the most influential Latin American writer of his generation.

The first English-language volume of essays on the Chilean author, Roberto Bolano, a Less Distant Star: Critical Essays, includes ten critical essays of his oeuvre.

With a special emphasis on his masterpieces: 2666, The Savage Detectives, By Night in Chile, and Distant Star, the essays address topics such as Borges's influence and the role of repetition, social memory, allegory, and neoliberalism.
