A Little Lumpen Novelita, while short, is among Bolano's most intoxicating works. Obsessive and ambiguous, its open-ended nature is reflective not only of the protagonist but of the author himself. And it further cements him as a master of the form, of any form. One of the best books of the year - A Little Lumpen Novelita feels as substantial as a book three times as long... . This is a glittering gem, as maddening and haunting as you'd expect from Bolano. A Little Lumpen Novelita may be Bolano's best trick, and greatest gift, ever. As for Bolano, what can one say? One of our greatest writers, a straight colossus.
