I have recently learned about a latin american literary sensation by the name of roberto bolano- his books include "The Savage Detectives" and "2066." I only know of him because Amazon has been promoting "2066" heavily for some reason, as have some online news outlets.
I've not read anything by him, but I'd like to since its referred to as very imaginary, but I am guessing it is more on the subject of detectives? I haven't gotten a good explanation of his style or his subjects but he intruiges me and before I go check him out at the local book shop, I was curious who here has already read something of his, and what they thought, mainly if the hype is well made.
thanks all, as always
