i took a break from savage detectives after the first book, to read a couple other things, and I'm gonna dive back in presently woooop

round these parts "savage" is used colloquially to mean "really, really good". like, "that book was savage". so this title always reads as the really, really good detectives to me

I have a tattoo of the post horn from The Crying of Lot 49, so that would add to the collection.

Other than reading the first 20ish pages of 2666 once at a goodwill, i’ve just started reading my first bolano - the savage detectives - and have nothing to add at the moment other than this is an incredible post

I’ve considered a post horn for some time but am too much of a wimp to pull it off. How’s it treating you?

I fell into reading bolano again hard, mostly the savage detectives but I’m gonna reread last evenings on earth again I think. wish I could read spanish

his blend of politics, poetry, and surrealist dada ideas and gives kind of a good view of all that shit or a sort of different path through that stuff

Third Reich is fine and I have love for it because of how quintessential posts it is, but it’s not that interesting to me

I like The Third Reich, but I haven't read it since its English-language publication, so I can't say much more than that. Other than I can see my hardcover edition of it from where I'm currently sitting.

After Camus, everything changed. I remember the
edition: it was a book with very large print, like a primary school reader, slim,
hardback, with a horrendous drawing on the jacket, a hard book to steal and
one that I didn’t know whether to hide under my arm or in my belt, because
it showed under my truant student blazer, and in the end I carried it out in
plain sight of all the clerks at the Glass Bookstore, this is one of the best
ways to steal, which I had learned from an Edgar Allan Poe story.

Reading Bolano always makes me want to read Borges, and Sor juana ines de la cruz too

one time I even translated one of Sor Juana's poems, though I can't read spanish

also I just realized that The Stridentists really existed, I always thought bolano just made them up!

manuel maples arce is a real person! damn

Stridentism shares some characteristics with Cubism, Dadaism, Futurism and Ultraism, but it developed a specific social dimension, taken from the Mexican Revolution, and a concern for action and its own present. Stridentists were part of the political avant-garde, in contrast to the "elitist" modernism of Los Contemporáneos.

Reading this now, really enjoying it though a lot of references are probably lost on me. Just finished the chapter on this Brazilian dude and it is so fucking funny ( also best chapter so far), and I'm not sure if I could explain why.
