Summary

As Pankaj Mishra remarked in The Nation, one of the remarkable qualities ofBolaño's short stories is that they can do the ''work of a novel.'' The InsufferableGaucho contains tales bent on returning to haunt you. Unpredictable and daring, highly controlled yet somehow haywire, a Bolaño story might concern anelusive plagiarist or an elderly lawyer giving up city life for an improbable returnto the family estate, now gone to wrack and ruin. Bolaño's stories have been applauded as ''bleakly luminous and perfectly calibrated'' (Publishers Weekly) and''complex and provocative'' (International Herald Tribune), and as Francine Prosesaid in The New York Times Book Review, ''something extraordinarily beautifuland (at least to me) entirely new.'' Two fascinating essays are also included.
