This is Bolaño's masterpiece (along with 2666). I approached this book with huge expectations, because of the hype around Bolaño, and I wasn't disappointed. ( )

La primera parte en la que García Madero relata sus aventuras a modo de diario está bien, para un 6. Explica su relación con el real viscelarimsmo y cómo la figura de Arturo Belano y Ulises Lima parecen espejismos, espectros que impulsan a la gente a seguir un movimiento que, en el fondo, ni siquiera a ellos mismos les importa. Sólo García MAdero se lo toma en serio y escribe poemas pesando en el movimiento. Por desgracia, la segunda parte del libro no sigue esta tónica. Tras el cliffhanger y el final abierto de la primera parte, la segunda parece una novela nueva, en la que distintos personajes (algunos mencionado en la primera parte como miembros del real viscelarismo y otros, por el contrario, nuevos, incorporados en esta segunda parte) narran sus aventuras. No he leído demasiado de la segunda parte (unas 40 páginas) pero me han parecido pointless, es decir, quizás todas las historias converjan en un ounto concreto y se resuelva la historia de García Madero, pero no tengo ganas de leer 420 páginas hasta llegar a ese punto, puesto que las historias son de des/amor en líneas generales y... qué queréis que os diga, no soy muy dado a este tipo de romances y líos amorosos.

Una pena porque, realmente, tenía potencial de ser una novela decente. ( )

Roberto Bolaño was an interesting and peripatetic guy. Born in Chile in 1953 to a working class family, he moved to Mexico as a teenager in the late 1960s, where he quickly dropped out of school to become a journalist involved with left-wing political causes. While developing his talent as a poet and writer of fiction, he returned to Chile around the time of the Pinochet coup and was imprisoned as a terrorist for a brief stretch before returning to Mexico City to start the Infrarrealismo movement as a reaction against the conventional literary traditions prevailing at the time (e.g., magical realism). Bolaño later left Mexico for Spain, where he lived a bohemian lifestyle as a writer and also as a security guard at a campground. He died prematurely at the age of 50 just as he was reaching the height of his fame as a novelist.

That background is useful to know before one launches into reading The Savage Detectives. Hailed as “the first great Latin American novel of the 21st century,” the book tells of two renegade poets—Arturo Belano, a Chilean ex-pat, and Ulises Lima, a Mexican national—who start a literary movement in Mexico City in 1975. They call themselves the “Visceral Realists,” resurrecting a short-lived group from the 1920s, and stand for whatever isn’t the current literary fashion. The ostensible plot of the story is the search that Belano (who is Bolaño’s alter ego) and Lima conduct for Cesárea Tinajero, the elusive founder of the original Visceral Realists, who long ago disappeared into the Sonoran desert. Their search takes them from the heart of Mexico City to the northern border of the country (accompanied by a prostitute and a young acolyte of the movement, all while being followed by two men intent on killing them), before they eventually scatter to Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

If that sounds like reasonably direct story-telling, rest assured that The Savage Detectives is anything but straightforward. The novel is divided into three parts, spread over a span of about two decades. The first and third sections involve the first-person narration of Juan García Madero, the young want-to-be Visceral Realist, who tells of how he got involved with Belano and Lima, how they came to leave Mexico City in a stolen car with a prostitute in tow, and their adventures in Sonora. These events are relayed as diary entries over a three-month period from late 1975 to early 1976. The middle section, comprising the bulk of the novel, adopts a completely different stylistic tone. Spread between 1976 and 1996, this part of the book chronicles a series of “interviews” with about forty people who had some sort of contact with Belano and Lima over the years following their trip to the desert. Of course, each of these narrators has a different opinion of the poets and their abortive movement and, collectively, their vignettes provide the reader with a not-quite-complete view of the rest of the story.

I found this novel to be always interesting and often thrilling, with only occasional stretches that dragged on too long (almost all of these were in the middle section of the book). Bolaño’s language is simply electric and the frenetic way he paces the story captures perfectly the passion and angst of a generation of young artists who likely never find what they are searching for. In that regard, The Savage Detectives has been likened to some of the great Beat Generation works (e,g, On the Road, Howl) that caught the spirit of a different place and time, and I think that comparison is apt. To be sure, though, this is an author with his own voice and the way he is able to mash up so many interrelated personal stories with themes involving politics, sex, philosophy, violence, and literary references into an almost-coherent story is simply amazing. This is a book that I really enjoyed reading and it ranks right beside the magnificent and harrowing 2666 as the best work this talented writer produced. ( )
