À La Recherche De Roberto Bolaño
The myths: "He was a heroin addict. He never did drugs. Hepatitis C, contracted from dirty needles, damaged his liver. He was arrested under suspicion of terrorism in Pinochet's Chile ... He was never in Chile." The reality? "It's also obvious that he never used heroin and that his drink of choice was tea." Lisa Locascio looks at a new exhibition of Bolaño's archives and recounts her own research trip to the Catalan town he called home.
