Read from January 10 to February 10, 2011 — I own a copy

This writing. I'm going to say it. It's visceral. It's so beautiful it hurts. And here's what I mean. I want to rush forward to read the next thing but at the same time I want to savor the sentence, the thought, the image, the slight flicker of delight. I once had an aunt who drove her car with her right foot on the gas and her left on the brake. I feel like that's what I'm doing when I read Bolaño.
