Review: Bolaño’s Mysterious ‘2666,’ Distilled to 5½ Hours by the Goodman Theater - The New York Times:
"CHICAGO — The obvious challenge in adapting a novel to the stage is how to make a story lying flat on the page leap to three-dimensional life. The task is particularly confounding in the case of “2666,” Roberto Bolaño’s magnum opus, published after his death at 50 in 2003. The book spans two continents, nearly a century, two converging story lines — each dangling digressions like an overtrimmed Christmas tree — and runs to around 900 pages of dense prose."
