This week in Chilean literature

The English translation of Isabel Allende’s Maya’s Notebook has finally been released, and here are a few reviews:

From the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/christine-bronstein/isabel-allende-interview_b_3139286.html

From Booklist: http://www.booklistonline.com/Maya-s-Notebook-Isabel-Allende/pid=5895420

From the Seattle Times: http://seattletimes.com/html/books/2020798646_bookallendexml.htm

Ok, that’s enough for now.  And The New Yorker has a story in its April 22 edition, “Mexican Manifesto,” by the prolific Robert Bolaño. Once again, this blogger wonders whether the Chilean writer really did die in Barcelona a decade ago and might not be in hiding and continuing to produce fiction:  http://www.newyorker.com/fiction/features/2013/04/22/130422fi_fiction_bolano
