Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed:
A posthumous masterwork by a prize-winning founder of the infrarealist poetry movement finds such characters as an American sportswriter, an elusive German novelist, and a teenage student interacting in an urban community on the U.S.-Mexico border where hundreds of young factory workers have disappeared. Simultaneous.
"Bolaño's urgency infuses literature with life's whole freight: the ache of a writing-workshop aspirant may embody sexual longing, or dreams of political freedom from oppression, even the utopian fantasy of the eradication of violence, while a master-novelist's doubts in his works' chances in the game of posterity can stand for all human remorse at the burdens of personal life, or at knowledge of the burdens of history."
Jonathan Lethem, New York Times, 11/12/2008Review:
"[Bolano's] ambitions were appropriately outsized: to make some final reckoning, to take life's measure, to wrestle to the limits of the void....Nothing is ever finished, nothing answered, nothing solved. Bolaño is too smart, or too sad, to attempt to piece it all together."
Ben Ehrenreich, Los Angeles Times, 11/08/2008
