Fantastic, of course, as everything Bolano touched was. These stories are a shining example of his "infrarealista" style, blending hack surrealism, comically absurd pastiche, Marxist wanderings, and underground Latin American literary flashes: a cop rat woo's Kafka's Josephine, a Borges-wannabe Chilean millionaire retires to the pampas where he takes up hunting rabbits, etc. A must read from the master of Chilean literature.
