This past week, The Elegant Variation has been hosting a 2666 Week for late Chilean author Roberto Bolaño's last work before he succumbed to liver disease in 2003. The last of three articles written is the most poignant and moving stories involving the dual loves of literature and life I have ever read. It is written by Francisco Goldman and it mixes in Bolaño's works with his love for his recently-deceased wife, Aura. No more descriptions, just read this link.
