Reviews

As for Bolaño, what can one say? One of our greatest writers, a straight colossus.--Junot Díaz
A Little Lumpen Novelita, while short, is among Bolano's most intoxicating works. Obsessive and ambiguous, its open-ended nature is reflective not only of the protagonist but of the author himself. And it further cements him as a master of the form, of any form.--Juan Vidal
A Little Lumpen Novelita may be Bolano's best trick, and greatest gift, ever.
