The Correspondence of Roberto Bolaño and Enrique Lihn

East of Borneo has published a great post that explores the interesting correspondence between Bolaño and Lihn.

Read the whole article here:

A somewhat slower pace

Not a lot going on lately around these parts. Sorry!

I did learn that Bolaño’s story “Meeting with Enrique Lihn” will be featured in the Best American Magazine Writing 2009. Here is a link to Columbia University Press’s Fall 2009 catalog with the blurb about the anthology: http://tinyurl.com/qou8tf (PDF). The catalog copy just says a Bolaño short story, but what other one could it be, really?

Also, I am working on a longer post on The Part About the Crimes, but it might not be ready for a while.

Meeting with Enrique Lihn

This week’s New Yorker features a new (or at least previously untranslated or unpublished) story.

Pretty much the whole story is a dream sequence–something we see a lot of in 2666.

You can hear some of the real Enrique Lihn’s poems on YouTube.
