More Bolaño!

Dzyd Lev reviews 2666 for the Seminary Co-op's The Front Table...

And Sarah points out that Lev Grossman (Dzyd status: unknown) hits on the novel's Friends-y naming convention for Time:

The 898 pages of 2666 are divided into 5 parts, and it will give you some idea of the book's tone, rigorously literary and ridiculously informal at the same time, to know that those parts are titled "The Part about Fate," "The Part about the Crimes," and so on, as if they were Friends episodes. (The flawless translation, by Natasha Wimmer, is appropriately loose and relaxed.) Part 1 is called "The Part about the Critics."

I am not going to read any reviews until I finish the book!
