Roberto Bolaño

Twentieth-century Chilean poet and novelist

Bolaño’s best trick, and greatest gift, ever.

—Gawker

Bolaño is always refreshing to read because things are never what they seem.

—Randy Rosenthal, Tweed’s Magazine

A Little Lumpen Novelita, while short, is among Bolano’s most intoxicating works. Obsessive and ambiguous, its open-ended nature is reflective not only of the protagonist but of the author himself. And it further cements him as a master of the form, of any form.

—Juan Vidal, NPR

As for Bolaño, what can one say? One of our greatest writers, a straight colossus.

—Junot Diaz

One of the best books of the year—A Little Lumpen Novelita feels as substantial as a book three times as long… This is a glittering gem, as maddening and haunting as you’d expect from Bolaño.

—Gabe Habash, Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

A Little Lumpen Novelita is a piece of intelligent realism without any sermons.

El País

A Little Lumpen Novelita is brave and beautiful, a ‘quiet storm’ that reminds us what a joy it is to read Bolaño’s intimate writing.

Revista Rocinante

Bolaño has joined the immortals.
