A Trip Through a Literary Labyrinth in Roberto Bolaño’s New Novel, ‘2666’ - The New York Times:
"There’s a four-and-a-half-page-long monster sentence early in the first part of Roberto Bolaño’s five-part posthumous magnum opus “2666.” It’s nothing particularly showy or strenuous. A lot of commas adorn this story of a Swabian who promoted cultural events for a Frisian town that was visited by an elusive literary genius who might or might not have been named Benno von Archimboldi and who spoke with a woman who went to Buenos Aires and met a little gaucho who presented her with a riddle that Archimboldi solved on the spot. For all its twists and turns the sentence reads as if Bolaño wrote it without breaking a sweat."
