Nazi Literature in the Americas free pdf A tour de force of black humor and imaginary erudition, "Nazi Literature in the Americas" presents itself as a biographical dictionary of writers who espoused extreme right-wing ideologies in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. While several meet violent ends, most are simply deluded sentimentalists and frustrated litterateurs. Composed of short biographies about imaginary writers from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Columbia, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela, and the USA, "Nazi Literature in the Americas" includes descriptions of the writers' works, cross references, a bibliography, and also an epilogue ("For Monsters"). All the writers are carefully and credibly situated in real literary worlds. Brisk and pseudo-academic, Nazi Literature in the Americas delicately balances irony and pathos. Bolano does not simply use his writers for target practice: in the space of a few pages he manages to sketch character portraits that are often pathetically funny, sometimes surprisingly moving, and, on occasion, authentically chilling. A remarkably inventive, funny, and disquieting sui generis novel, "Nazi Literature in the Americas" offers a clear view into the workings of one of the most extraordinarily fecund literary imaginations of our time.

About Roberto Bolano

After his release he went back to Mexico before travelling to Europe and finally settling in Catalonia. He received the Heralde Prize and the Romulo Gallegos Prize for the The Savage Detectives. He died at the age of fifty.
