    Antwerp can be viewed as the Big Bang of Roberto Bolano's fictional universe. Reading the novel, the reader is present at the birth of Bolano's enterprise in prose: all the elements are here, highly compressed, at the moment when his talent explodes. From this springboard - which Bolano chose to publish in 2002, twenty years after he'd written it ('and even that I can't be certain of') - as if testing out a high dive, he would plunge into the unexplored depths of the modern novel. ANTWERP's fractured narration in 54 sections - voices from a dream, from a nighmare, from passers by, from an omniscient narrator, from 'Robert Bolano', all cut to the bone!

    The stories in The Insufferable Gaucho — unpredictable and daring, highly controlled yet somehow haywire — might concern a stalwart rat police detective investigating terrible rodent crimes, or an elusive plagiarist, or an elderly Argentine lawyer giving up city life for an improbable return to the family estate on the Pampas, now gone to wrack and ruin. These five astonishing stories, along with two compelling essays, show Bolano as a magician, pulling bloodthirsty rabbits out of his hat.
