Supercontext: Distant Star by Roberto Bolaño

This 1996 novella is about the dark history of Chilé, merged with a detective story about poets. We look at Bolaño’s career, while taking into account criticisms of his authenticity and his representation of Chileans from the vantage of his security in Europe.
