O, Bolano

I have only cracked this majestic endeavor, still glad that I bought the boxed set. I have only read three or four pages but remain simply stunned. The epigram of Baudelaire was apposite, the temper of these brief lives of critics are likewise gilded.

Aside from my immense glee in that direction, I have become aware that I have cultivated an interest in the texts of David Hackett Fischer. Not wishing to spend too much time on the couch, I have surmised that just as the election of 2004 led me to read all of Shelby Foote's Civil War Narrative, perhaps this democratic correction has restored some sense of respect for the nation's origins.
