Americans and Robert Bolaño

Scott Esposito talks about why Americans love Robert Bolaño so much in the new issue of Hermano Cerdo (scroll down past the table of contents to get to the article). I agree with just about everything Scott says about why Americans might be drawn to Bolaño and his writing, but I still can't join the praise of this "darling of the American literary media." See my not-very-favorable review of Bolaño's The Savage Detectives here.

I highly recommend Scott's literary blog Conversational Reading. It's one of my favorites.
