With the release of Roberto Bolano?s The Savage Detectives in 1998,journalist Monica Maristain discovered a writer ?capable of befriending his readers.? After exchanging several letters with Bolano, Maristain formed a friendship of her own, culminating in an extensive interview with the novelist about truth and consequences, an interview that turned out to be Bolano?s last. Appearing for the first time in English, Bolano?s final interview is accompanied by a collection of conversations with reporters stationed throughout Latin America, providing a rich context for the work of

the writer who, according to essayist Marcela Valdes, is ?a T.S. Eliot or Virginia Woolf of Latin American letters.? As in all of Bolano?s work, there is also wide-ranging discussion of the author?s many literary influences. (Explanatory notes on authors and titles that may be unfamiliar to English-language readers are included here.) The interviews, all of which were completed during the writing of the gigantic 2666, also address Bolano?s deepest personal concerns, from his domestic life and two young children to the realities of a fatal disease.
