Two More Bolano Novels . . .
Big day for Roberto Bolano fans (and the Wylie Agency) . . . according to the Guardian, two more Bolano novels have been discovered among his papers. Oh, and a sixth part (!?!) to 2666.
Two new novels by the Chilean author Roberto Bolaño have reportedly been found in Spain among papers he left behind after his death. The previously unseen manuscripts were entitled Diorama and The Troubles of the Real Police Officer, reported La Vanguardia.
The newspaper said the documents also included what is believed to be a sixth section of Bolaño’s epic five-part novel 2666.
I have to admit that reading this I half-cringed . . . I really hope that these aren’t abandoned projects that Bolano didn’t necessarily want to publish.
