    Somewhere in the midst of this book, Bola o spells out in explicit words what I suspected to be the undercurrents from the word go .a novel about order and disorder, justice and injustice, God and the Void So there I was witnessing a swashbuckling cavalcade of ideas, overflowing from the chariot of Bola o s mind irreducible owing to their weight, hypnotic owing to their flight My first Bola o could not have been a better book 30 essays written as biographies of fictitious authors, who lived under the tremulous skies of Nazism and dabbled in poetry and science fiction, magical realism and political sagas, span the length and breadth of the written word presenting an inclusive, although explosive, picture of Bola o s thoughts that bodes well with establishing acquaintance with his ideologies too, perhaps The fascist authors, who are mostly Argentine or American languishing under pallidity and the arcane, display a wide array of literary faith perseverance and manipulation, suppression and connivance, displacement and return, satire and humor they push originality and also fall prey to plagiarism, they spark the rebel and turn victim too The aspect, however, that secured my curiosity the tightest was the masterful amalgamation of real places, events and people into these imaginary lives While there is generous reference to Trotskyism, Falangism, Peronism and the likes, there are veiled questions on the theocratic and Episcopalian diktats There is generous mention of Borges and Cort zar who are known to have influenced Bola o in many inspirational ways.Of course, the ingenuity of story telling that had to befall Bola o later in his writing career was visible in many of these essays, three of which, I took in with a chortle and awed smirk in one work, the chapters, so begin, that joining the first letter of each chapter spell HITLER in another, a poem is written as a series of maps which upon further deciphering, reveal verses that point to their placement and use and in the last, a book is called Geometry that deploys variations like the barbed wire fence, to join unrelated verses and provoke meaning out of the criss cross Oh there were far too many captivating things in this book and it turned out to be indeed a spectacle close to a chariot ride slow and heavy at the beginning, loading the substantial thoughts one after another, gingerly finding foothold to attain stability, rolling the bearings forward and backward, hoisting the protagonists while narrating their significance to the ride, hopping cautiously for the initial furlongs and then, gaining speed with a wicked kick and speeding away with the confidence of a wise, chuckling driver.Let me sign off with one of the many flabbergasting paragraphs highlighting Bola o s boundless imagination that left my jaw drop with sheer pleasure ..the action unfolds in a distorted present where nothing is as it seems, or in a distant future full of abandoned, ruined cities, and ominously silent landscapes, similar in many respects to those of the Midwest His plots abound in providential heroes and mad scientists hidden clans and tribes which at the ordained time must emerge and do battle with other hidden tribes secret societies of men in black who meet at isolated ranches on the prairie private detectives who must search for people lost on other planets children stolen and raised by inferior races so that, having reached adulthood, they may take control of the tribe and lead it to immolation unseen animals with insatiable appetites mutant plants invisible planets that suddenly become visible teenage girls offered as human sacrifices cities of ice with a single inhabitant cowboys visited by angels mass migrations destroying everything in their path underground labyrinths swarming with warrior monks plots to assassinate the president of the United States spaceships fleeing an earth in flames to colonize Jupiter societies of telepathic killers children growing up all alone in dark, cold yards

    The artists, writers, poets which inhabit this lexicon type novel breathe the air of history, and all lead individual destinies never devoid of woe The pursuit of art is presented warts all, is as realistic of art as it is about the appreciation of art Nazi Literature in the Americas is a prolonged lament As if anything Bolano ever wrote wasn t one The uniqueness of the novel is that it has no plot but has instead the overwhelming urge to collect writers as economically, poignantly, as fanatically as one would with baseball player cards.To say this writer appreciates other writers would be a gross understatement He creates entire mythologies, constructs entire literary movements which never even occurred The apocryphal is superbly mixed in with the real The feeling of being left out, of uncovering only Iceberg tips, in short of the deprivation of intellect emotion this is what this phenomenal novel s really about.

    It took me a while to understand where Roberto Bola o was coming from Nazi Literature in America is as an anthology of authors born in the late nineteenth century and the years 50 60, men and women from different social backgrounds, the writer has grouped into categories with titles sometimes poetic..Reading the first biographies, or less brief, one obscuring the previous and relegating it to an almost instantaneous forgetfulness, I thought that I was there in front of a style exercise that would quickly become boring Finally, I did not say it too much anyway, because Bola o There was inevitably something to understand behind this series of portraits, especially since the second feeling that their discovery has quickly aroused, is that of a deafness but nevertheless very present, which provided me one key to understand at least I believe the purpose of the author.To say that the imaginary anthology of Roberto Bola o deals with Nazi literature might seem wrong, since the works of some authors that are presented, from the information that we provided, deal with themes no relation with their political tendencies On the other hand, fascist ideals, the sympathy felt by others for a Hitler or a Mussolini, are often referred to only anecdotally, as quaint and somewhat ridiculous features of the author s personality.Biographies of Nazi Literature in America is as cold factual elements compounds censuses on the life and work of the authors may not contain any judgment or condemnation on their political connections And even when some of them went ideals into action, for example by participating Argentine death squads or engaging in Franco s army is presented, like all so neutral.The reader could let himself be caught so these famous Nazi authors Except for those who, as previously mentioned, have done the harm, and are not content to think or write it, they do not seem to be dangerous or really bad Individuals like the others, let alone with us, to whom we could possibly reproach our differences of opinion Moreover, some of them were very close to personalities of extreme left and see this writer who was part of the Ku Klux Klan, he also had black friends And this is the genius of the demonstration of Roberto Bola o, which, casually, sends his message by making almost all these authors ordinary individuals, it means that barbarism is a possibility buried in every man or woman , and especially remember that one must not compromise with any form of Nazism, Fascism, whatever the manifestations, obvious or allusive, acts or thoughts Demonstration, but also fierce criticism of a society unable to be moved, to revolt against the said manifestations Which brings us to another problematic, also raised here should we dissociate the writer from his work, or should we, in the name of the ideals he defends, condemn him to censorship, or at least to the shame Is there a right answer to this question Nazi Literature in America has in any case deserves to engage in a reflection not only on this but on the vigilance that is the responsibility of all of us, about the spread of fascist ideologies.

    i spend way too much time making my bookshelves pretty pruning, arranging, designing i m regularly plagued by some pretty critical issues chronologically by author color size y see unlike the rest of my shitty and privileged generation who gets all pantiebunched about evil corporations all them bombs dropped on all them brown people, i actually have serious things on the brain i fantasize that i m gonna bring some gorgeous woman back home please god let it be marisa tomei and or rosario dawson and she ll be kind of on the fence and then when she sees all the fantastic books in my collection and how beautiful they all are she ll fuck me all night and bolano s all about that he loves books and writers than me than anyone, i think the man is kinda deranged but it s not in some egghead annoying hermetically sealed shut off from humanity way his books explode with cigarette smoking scotch swilling cafe hanging author referencing sex starved book obsessed maniacs and the one above Nazi Literature could ve been a slight literary joke or seriously dull but again, books are to bolano what deprivation was to larkin what daffodils were to wordsworth life books life and this book is alive with both.

    Few novels bring me to a place that is best described as that plane one is trapped in before waking from a very lucid dream You know the place where you can taste the air, feel the colors, where reality and imagination are embraced so thoroughly that borders blend and realign themselves NAZI LITERATURE IN THE AMERICAS is like that place Bolano creates a completely fabricated world where poets and novelists and artists mingle with other characters both fictional and real as if they were all sitting next to you, as neighbors in a world where divisions and boundaries are merely political jargon that are refused entry into the mind The shear depth of this world is staggering The novel is almost a collection of individual stories the individual stories make this a novel How can one person be interlocked with so many others I kept asking myself as I read That is when I began to understand Bolano You see, Bolano wrote in a manner that was than storytelling he was creating He was making and destroying, alloting, toiling, humoring, and redefining what it means to write fiction Does it all work NO But that is part of the novel s beauty When it doesn t work that makes it all seem the real Life is messy At least mine is And when you stop to think about all the people that have come in and out of your life and all of thier stories you will begin to get an understanding and appreciation for this modest novel To say would only spoil the surreal entrance one gets as they read.HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION

    This is an encyclopedia of writers associated with the Nazi Literature movement of the 20th century, focusing mainly on those living in the Americas It gives each writer a couple of pages of biography and discusses most of their major works All of it is backed up by an extensive index and a vast bibliography So far so simple yeah Oh hell no This is fucking Bola o.Y see, there is no such thing as Nazi Literature It s all made up And all of the people discussed in this book All made up as well This is a fictional encyclopedia None of it is real I will admit, if you haven t read any Bola o before then this work will be completely wasted on you This is Bola o at his most Bola o It is just so weird and fun and strangely tragic You honestly treat these fictional people as real, living writers You become intrigued by their oeuvres only to remember it s all made up It s utterly original and a fine antinovel It only further elevates Bola o to the level of a genius.


  7. says:

    This is a real oddity, very clever, ironic and satirical, hardly a novel an encyclopedia Basically it is a list of fascist and ultra right wing authors of the Americas Each one has a brief biography and analysis of their works, with their dates some don t pass away until the 2020s They are generally self deluded, often vicious, mostly mediocre and Bolano sends them all up remorselessly Their fictional biographies sometimes overlap with real life Ginsberg, Octavio Paz and Borges pop up, as does Bolano himself in a Chilean prison The general madness, poetic soccer hooligans, struggling publishing houses and outright Nazis can get a little predictable, but Bolano himself explained he was talking as much about the left as the right and indeed about literature On the whole it s a tour de force and very well written It all hangs together there are interrelations between the characters and Bolano pulls it off splendidly.Underneath is a very sharp analysis of fascism and its modes of thought and doctrines, laid bare by Bolano making them seem as ridiculous as they are Well worth the effort.

    This brutal little classic will be only appreciated by misfits, if they re lucky enough to discover it It s the most recently translated novel of the late Roberto Bola o in another handsome edition from New Directions a volume of invented biographies, detailing the lives and works of fascist litterateurs who never existed.Here is wicked humor of the highest order but I suspect it will be opaque to anyone innocent of the cruelties of literary gossip masquerading as criticism and as an occasional contributer, I would know It also helps to have a cursory knowledge of the history of South American fascism, which provides the black backdrop to Bola o s potted poisoned lives His tone is insistently aseptic, his evaluations all the lethal for being neutral in their execution It s one of the sharpest, funniest books I know, but its hilarity cuts to the bone and is almost indistinguishable from grief.


  9. says:

    In Nazi Literature in the Americas Roberto Bola o a Chilean writer who sadly died aged fifty in 2003 has provided the perfect literary companion It s an exhaustive collection of pocket obituaries of all the major and many of the minor poets, writers and novelists whose political conservatism took them to the extreme right, who became Nazis or fellow travellers, all of whom were born in the Americas It s such a pity we do not have a European equivalent.I confess I had never heard of many of the poets, novelists and artists in his exhaustive anthology No, I ll go further I had never heard of any of them But perhaps that s just the nature of the subject, that and the fact that most of them were miserable failures who came to rather bleak and lonely ends For those of you who are in as much ignorance as I am over this subject the author has helpfully provided a good summary at the end There is also a decent bibliography, with the main works of the poets, writers and novelists listed, together with their place and date of publication I m glancing over it now, as I write and as I think My eye is immediately drawn to The Birth of the New City Force by Gustavo Borda, published in Mexico City in 2005 I pause, surprised Obviously there is something wrong Remember, Bola o died in 2003 He could not possibly know about this book, first appearing two years later It must be a misprint But then there is Untitled, a posthumous novel by Zach Sondenstern, published in Los Angeles in 2023, thirteen years from now Thirteen years Bola o could not know this I could not know this you could not know this.I apologise I m being deeply disingenuous, as those of you who have already read this book will know For, you see, it s not an encyclopedia at all it s a novel, though one of the strangest that you are ever likely to encounter It s a deadpan anthology, darkly humorous at points, bitingly ironic, of people who never existed, poems never written and novels never published I would go further it s a literary zoo, a collection of people who could never exist.Bola o, whom I am only just discovering, is from the same place and the same tradition as Jorge Luis Borges We are in the same territory, in other words, as The Universal History of Infamy and Borges other brilliant fictions, which exist in a half world between truth and inventiveness Nazi Literature in the Americas, first published in Spanish in 1996, owes a considerable debt to Borges Bola o has the same imaginative and creative facility, if not the same economy of genius His book is the world of the impish imagination his creations for the most part grotesque and, for me, outrageously funny There is the Brazilian Luiz Fontaine Da Souza, who writes obsessive, and eye wateringly lengthy, multi volume refutations of the carriers of the modern idea, from Montesquieu to Sartre the latter s Being and Nothingness is a particular obsession There is Zach Sodenstern, the American who wrote the Gunther O Connell series of science fiction novels, whose hero has a German Sheppard dog with telepathic powers and Nazi tendencies And then there is my personal favourite, Carlos Ramirez Hoffman, a Chilean poet in the pay of Pinochet s death squads, who composes poetry in the sky in a plane fitted with smoke canisters, to write out his nightmares, which were our nightmares too, for the wind to obliterate I have a feeling that both the Futurists and Dadaists would have adored him And so it goes on Bola o does not just invent people and ideas, he invents complete schools of literature, including French barbaric writing, lead by a retired Parisian concierge much given to urinating on the novels of Stendhal The whole thing is a great pastiche In the sense the subject matter is almost irrelevant, in that the real explorations here are into words and ideas, to the imaginative and creative use of language in a brilliantly playful fashion It s the work of a literary trickster, the Loki of the imagination The real love, the inner love, is that of books and all they have to offer There is, of course, another possibility, another piece of Borges style magic Bola o has created an alternate literary universe, one peopled by obsessives, cranks and literary mediocrities Goebbels once lamented that National Socialism seemed incapable of creating great art What he did not understand, what he could not understand, was that such a thing was impossible, because great works of art can only be created by minds that are free to roam without restriction In the Goebbels universe the only art that could exist is that of the oddities who populate the pages of Nazi Literature in the Americas.

    In the one notorious Book in 2666, Bolano numbs his reader with one vignette of rape and murder after another They read like a police blotter In Nazi Literature in the Americas, one capsule biography of an extreme right wing writer follows another They read like encyclopedia entries There s an ostensible simplicity there but this is not just some mere exposition of cleverness I mean, it can t just be that, can it Whenever I make some pretense of discussing what a work of fiction really means, I always offer the disclaimer that I don t know And I really don t Just thinking out loud on the keyboard Bolano writes about Evil with a capital E And nothing epitomizes evil like the Third Reich So, Bolano goes again and again to that Nazi well Which is nice for a reader looking around my very quiet office who doesn t like to burn too many brain cells trying to spot the allegory There is no hidden DSM V denouement no child abuse or bedwetting or near death experience to add explanation Evil Is.But that doesn t mean we can t laugh at it Among the poems of John Brock that Bolano assures us merit special attention is Street Without a Name a text in which quotations from MacLeish and Conrad Aiken are combined with the menus of the Orange County jail and the pederastic dreams of a literature professor who taught classes for the prisoners on Tuesdays and Thursdays Bolano has that kind of mind My guess is that that came out in one take.There are quick bios of 100 or so made up writers and artists Here s just two Arthur Crane New Orleans, 1947 Los Angeles, 1989 Poet Author of a number of important books, including Homosexual Heaven and Disciplining Children He indulged his suicidal tendencies by frequenting the underworld and hanging out with lowlifes Others smoke three packs of cigarettes a day.Antonio Lacouture Buenos Aires, 1943 Buenos Aires, 1999 Argentinean military officer He defeated subversives but lost the Falklands An expert in the submarine technique and the application of electrodes He invented a game using mice The sound of his voice made prisoners tremble He received various decorations.Some of the dates of death for these writers are beyond the date of publication and beyond today, as I write this 2021, 2022, 2015, 2029. Again, I don t know and maybe it s all too simple, but Evil exists, it is It did not end at Nuremburg with a few well deserved hangings Evil is embedded and lasts At least until 2666.
