    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindleThis short novel has some similar elements to The Savage Detectives but it's much darker Bolaño looks at the sinister side of Latin American poetry movements and politics as he explores the dark careers and identities of Alberto Ruiz Tagle aka Carlos Wieder a member of the Chilean air force who achieves as small measure of fame as a poet aviator practicing a dark kind of performance art by skywriting over the Andes The book's narrator who met Ruiz TagleWieder in a series of poetry workshops during their youth describes the clues that he a friend and a private investigator uncover in their efforts to find Wieder whom they suspect of committing violent acts The ominous political reality of Chile in the 1970s and after pervades Distant Star Friends and acuaintances disappear or are disappeared Fascist villains as wel

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindleThis short novel that flew through the dark clouds covering an eerie 70's era Chile was a breathtaking and chilling narrative that I wish could have gone on for so much longer Intriguing with a hidden sinister element Bolaño seeks to make sense of Chile's turbulent past He takes his obsession with poets adds the Chilean Air Force and in particular one Carlos Wieder to create a compelling read that despite it's short length turned out to be the best of work I have read so far Turn up any stone in Chile the poet Pablo Neruda used to say and five poets will

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindleThis novel is an extension of the last entry in Bolaño's wonderful earlier work Nazi Literature in the Americas It's clear why Bolaño made it into a novel it's one of the most memorable sections of the book A poet is forced into the Chilean

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindleA brilliant miniature of the tenderness and sadism of 1970s Southern Cone poetry and politics Bolaño as in The Savage Detectives works to undermine Art and Poetry as the cult of the pure while adoring both as accidental conseuences of living He accuses poetry and poets of the LuciferianRomantic lyrical gyre specifically in the role of a sky writing fascis

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindleA much better primer for 2666 than The Savage Detectives this one's short and involves the same sort of style themes characters geographic all over the placeness lists of books and writers some real some so obscure they may as well be made up soaring peaks and dry valleys but in this one there's skywriting Definitely a recommended wading pool if you're wary of the hypeheft of 2666 for which the average rating on goodreads right now somehow on a scale of 1 to 5 stars is 579

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante Kindle355There are certain authors whom I keep coming back to because they do various themes to the point of what should be death but which never actually achieve that final destination of overworked banality This is hardly a static or even a linear relationship seeing as how my previous Bolaño experience occurred in 2014 and the priorfirst engagement happened in the far off blue yonder of my pre Goodreads days encompassing a time spanning from when I still considered myself an engineer to the now accompanied by English tutoring job

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindleA book about poets in Chile during the 1973 coup d'etat specifically Alberto Ruiz Tagle an aviator Ruiz Tagle's real name was Carlos Wieder and he had been part of the Chilean Air Force Throughout this short novel he appears and disappears and there are sightings in unusual places such as a prison for political dissidents It is not always obvious who the leftists are the right wingers or the Nazis Some claim to be poets and not political Was that possible in the Chile of that era There are figures that appear and then are disappeared It is not a narrative that is linear or easy to follow But Bolaño creates an impression of a time and place that pu

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindleForty years ago Chile's elected president Salvador Allende was overthrown by the Pinochet regime Reading Roberto Bolaño novella DISTANT STAR today recollections of the coup events and especially their aftermath re emerge vividly in my mind In this work originally published in Spanish in 1996 the author confronts us with different kinds of regime collaboration from the activist to the sections of society that see themselves as standing innocently at the sidelines While fictionalizing his scenarios and characters with hindsight we can recognize many aspects not only of the reality of the time but also as experienced in other comparable totalitarian regimes This is a disconcerting and challenging read that will hang on in the reader's memory DISTANT STAR opens a short time prior to the coup a group of left leaning students and their poet teacher are debating literary traditions an

    Paperback Estrella distante eBook ´ estrella book, distante epub, Estrella distante KindlePicked this one up second hand recently and synchronicity it turns out to be an expansion of one of the entries in Bolaño's Nazi Literature in the Americas which I only recently read into a complete novel Seems like the only way to review this then is to consider if the expansion of the story of Carlos Wieder was really necessary and if this novel works on its own as a narrative without the clever framework of the phony literary encyclopediaThe answer is sure ok why not The narrative of the serial killer sky writing Nazi poet definitely works as a short novel In this longer setting Bolaño makes clearer Wieder's significance as a kind of mythic figure for Pinochet's coup and reign of terror Because the aviator is both a poet and a killer he seems to draw the author and reader along with him into the cultural phenomenon that is a militaryfascist coup Looking back over the whole Nazi Literature project and even now stopping to reconsider many of the episodes of The Savage Detec
