Dwight GarnerThe excellent thing about Between Parentheses is how thoroughly it dispels any incense or stale reverence in the air. It's a loud, greasy, unkempt thing. Reading it is not like sitting through an air-conditioned seminar with the distinguished Señor Bolaño. It's like sitting on a barstool next to him, the jukebox playing dirty flamenco, after he's consumed a platter of Pisco sours. You may wish to make a batch yourself before you step onto the first page…Bolaño's buzzing mind is a pleasure to dip into.
