Bolano left us (or rather his "close admirers" discovered) this slick little novella, thank god. A quick, alienating read about orphaned siblings living in a world of no hope. Shadowy, sinister, dreamlike. We see dreamlike qualities praised in too many limp reads; the narrator in 'A Little Lumpen..' delivers each line as if recalling a waking nightmare.

It is disgusting how great a writer William Gass is. 'On Being Blue', one of his first short forays, is simultaneously playful and earnest. His advocacy for a love of language and a better treatment of English is very inspiring; and that 'I' word is not something you hear much about the guy who once said “I write because I hate. A lot. Hard.”.The last little rant Willie goes on is enough to keep any artist going. What a lovely little book.
