Antwerp

Roberto bolaño

«Antwerp is a little book, a sketch pad, but it is essential for readers of his other works. (…) Antwerp is an improvisational delight, black, violent and quivering with intent. It is as if the characters are reacting for the first time to a script in which they have been given complete freedom by a more than liberal director. Voices speak at once, blurring and amplifying each other. The writer wanders in and out, bemused by the shape it is taking.» – Eileen Battersby, Irish Times
