What I really like about this edition, along with the one I have for The Savage Detectives, is that it has some notes from Bolaño’s notebook when making the book. Really sheds some light about the sloppy creative process that goes into making a wonderfully crafted novel like this one.
I'm debating with myself if I should start reading this again. I got past the first chapter, which was really good I must say, but didn’t finish it (yes! because of the length). However, I really fucking liked Los Detectives Salvajes (The Savage Detectives) by Bolaño, so I don’t know.
