This book by Chilean poet and late-in-life journalist Roberto Bolaño reads likes a scrapbook full of the newspaper columns and articles he wrote in the last five years of his life. His works are opinionated and range from musings on his family life to criticisms of other writers. Whatever his subject, he uses his talent and manipulation of the written word to great effect to make sure his message is heard.
