Summary "Bolaño has attained a mythical stature in a short time, often being considered the most influential Latin American writer of his generation. The first English-language volume of essays on the Chilean author, Roberto Bolaño, a Less Distant Star: Critical Essays, includes ten critical essays covering many of his twenty publications, with a special emphasis on his masterpieces: 2666, The Savage Detectives, By Night in Chile, and Distant Star. The essays address Borges's influence and the role of repetition, social memory, allegory, and neoliberalism in Bolaño's works, among many other topics. This book covers the need for a study that goes beyond the rather impressionistic journalistic writing that, until now, constitutes the core of the written English-language reception of Bolaño"--
