Full description for Antwerp
As Bolano s friend and literary executor, Ignacio Echevarria, once suggested, Antwerp can be viewed as the Big Bang of Roberto Bolano s fictional universe. Reading this 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 nightmare, from passers by, from an omniscient narrator, from Roberto Bolano all speak moves in multiple directions and cuts to the bone."
