The Savage Detectives

The Savage Detectives - Roberto Bolaño, Natasha Wimmer There was a time when I would have loved this book. I actually did enjoy the part I read. But as soon as I became convinced -- around page 100 -- that nothing of note was actually going to happen, so to speak, I had to give it up. I hope to pick up another Bolano someday, as I hear this is not his best work -- and I need to know why John Banville, Susan Sontag, and Francine Prose all think he's the bomb.
