I Remember – #245

I remember when I saw 2666 in a remainder store.  I hadn’t read it yet, but I was aware of the praise heaped upon it in the English-language newspapers, journals and review websites.  I bought it with some trepidation, however, as I wasn’t sure if the length was too much for Bolaño.  I read it (or started it) on the bus home to my father’s house, where I was living at the time.
