Roberto Bolano

Speaking of Barcelona, here’ an awesome Catalan street art image posted by Gsz on Flickr. The stencil is of the late Chilean writer and poet Roberto Bolano, who made Catalonia his home and the setting for many scenes in his stories, notably in the much-acclaimed and brilliant novel “The Savage Detectives.” This book and another massive work titled “2666” were published post-humously. The author died in 2003.
