Wyatt Mason…this short, exquisite novel is another unlikely masterpiece, as sui generis as all his books so far…Bolano in The Skating Rink manages to honor genre conventions while simultaneously exploding them, creating a work of intense and unrealized longing. "Incomprehensibly," Moran tells us, "my eyes filled with tears and I felt alone and lost." The imperative to present the sources of such emotion remains a central feature in Bolano's expanding shelf of astonishing fictions, the wellsprings of incomprehensible feeling that hide in even the most abject fool.
