You’re deluded and so clearly enamored of the “new democracy” in Chile, as you call the current neo-liberal government of which you are a member as Chile’s current ambassador to Mexico –BTW, a ruling-elite which came to power in after Pinochet’s fascists overthrew the democratically-elected government of Salvador Allende, murdering thousands of Chilean-leftists and destroying the dreams of millions in the CIA-backed coup of that you are either unable or unwilling to see the truth about Neruda or about the socialist governments you find so flawed!

The thrill of the hunt. That is patently unfair of course, but people will carry with them these expectations into the book. In fact, Ampuero’s brief epilogue alludes to his own mysterious inside knowledge; pretty fantastic for a neighbor-boy who actually admits that he never even spoke to Neruda!

El caso Neruda by Roberto Ampuero

How often do you find a novel that rolls through all these geographic locations? Cayetano has no experience as a Robeeto, so Neruda hands him a stack of Georges Simenon novels and tells him to go to work, which I found hilarious. Galileo was his hero. The reader may also be reminded of the great Italian writer Antonio Tabucchi.
