The fiction of Roberto Bolaño challenges political authority, identity constructs, and the preconceptions of prosaic formatting. The novels The Savage Detectives, Distant Star and Antwerp are desperate books, all looking to artists to alleviate/explore the pain perpetuated by our global society. His characters know and fear their governments; their lives act as exemplars of how to survive in a world rife with state-sanctioned violence.

Reading List: The Savage Detectives; Distant Star; and Antwerp by Roberto Bolaño
