Παρουσίαση

Roberto Bolano burst onto the scene with The Savage Detectives, and his posthumous masterpiece 2666 confirmed his place as a giant of Latin American literature. The Insufferable Gaucho was the last book he prepared for publication before he died in 2003.
Unpredictable and daring, highly controlled and yet somehow haywire, the five short stories included here are some of Bolano's best. Whether they concern a stalwart rodent detective trying to investigate the mysterious deaths of his fellow rats, an elderly judge giving up his job in the city for an improbable return to the family farm in the pampas, or a confrontation between an elusive film-maker and the little-known Argentinian novelist whose work he's plagiarized for years they are as haunting as they are enthralling.
In addition, The Insufferable Gaucho offers, for the first time in English, two essays by Roberto Bolano: 'Literature + Illness = Illness' and 'The Myths of Cthulhu'. Provocative and often scathing, Bolano's essays are alive with his trademark humour, violence and utter faith in the power of the written word. Roberto Bolano is undoubtedly, as Susan Sontag said, 'the real thing and the rarest'. (From the publisher)

Περιεχόμενα

"Jim" - A short tale about a troubled Vietnam veteran living as a poet in Mexico.
"The Insufferable Gaucho" - The title story of the collection is inspired by the Jorge Luis Borges story The South, which is mentioned in the story. The esteemed lawyer H?ctor Pereda leaves Buenos Aires for a simpler life at a remote ranch on the pampas, and later returns to the city a changed man. (Its strange pampa "rabbits" are not fantasy but refer to the Patagonian mara.)
"Police Rat" - the story of Pepe the rat, a relative of Kafka's Josephine the singer, who describes his life as a police rat in the sewers.
"Alvaro Rousselot's Journey" - The story of an Argentine writer who travels to France in search of a director who's been filming his books without giving the author credit or royalties.
"Two Catholic Tales" - "The Vocation" is about a young man waiting for his calling, and "Chance" deals with a lunatic who escapes from an asylum.
"Literature + Illness = Illness" - an essay, originally a lecture about illness, sex, Mallarm?'s "Brise Marine" ("Sea Breeze") and Baudelaire's "The Voyage".
"The Myths of Cthulhu" - an essay, originally a lecture about writers, writing, and the state of Latin American literature. (The title is a reference to H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos.)
