Village Voice Interviews Natasha Wimmer

This is a longer version of an interview that appeared in the Voice’s new column Lit Seen.

Wimmer: 2666 is interesting, page character-wise. Its characters tend to be more mask-like and less human than the characters of The Savage Detectives. But the major exception is Amalfitano, purchase who also happens to be my favorite. I have a special fondness for the whole Part About Amalfitano, in which Bolaño is at his most tender. And Lola, Amalfitano’s deluded wife, is a great creation.
