Roberto Bolaño - plagiarism - the easy way to become a writer

This was the book I found at my first visit at Words Without Borders: Roberto Bolaño, "The Many Masks of Max Mirebelais" "Roberto Bolaño's Nazi Literature in the Americas presents itself as a biographical dictionary of American writers who flirted with or espoused extreme right-wing ideologies in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It is a tour de force of black humor and imaginary erudition. The novel is composed of short biographies, including descriptions of the writers' works. All of the writers are imaginary, although they are all carefully and credibly situated in real literary worlds. Authors from twelve different countries are included." Read Roberto Bolaño text here. "With the passage of time he became expert in the art of breaking down the work of another poet in order to make it his own"
