There Is Also a Good Deal of Fiction in His Fiction
Posted by: Keir Graff

As Larry Rohrter reports in the New York Times, “A Chilean Writer’s Fictions Might Include His Own Colorful Past“:

At the same time, some of Mr. Bolaño’s friends in Mexico, where he lived for nearly a decade before finally settling down near Barcelona, Spain, are questioning another aspect of the life story he constructed for himself.

They say that Mr. Bolaño, who is rapidly emerging as the pre-eminent Latin American writer of his generation, was not in Chile during the military coup that brought Gen. Augusto Pinochet to power, despite his claim to that badge of honor.

Yeah, right, like a novelist is going to make up stories.
