Translated from the Spanish by Laura Healy
Roberto Bolaño (1953–2003) was born in Santiago, Chile, and later lived in Mexico City, where he was a founder of the Infrarealist poetry movement. His novel 2666 (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) received the 2008 National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction. “A Stroll Through Literature” is excerpted from Tres, which will be published by New Directions this fall.
