Bolano’s New Works…Discovered or Revealed?

Supposedly two new Roberto Bolano novels have been discovered in Spain amongst the deceased authors papers.

Two new novels by the Chilean author Roberto Bolaño have reportedly been found in Spain among papers he left behind after his death. The previously unseen manuscripts were entitled Diorama and The Troubles of the Real Police Officer, reported La Vanguardia.
The newspaper said the documents also included what is believed to be a sixth section of Bolaño’s epic five-part novel 2666.
The Wylie Agency, the literary agency, which recently took over the Bolaño estate, declined to comment about the reports. The novels apparently came to light when piles of documents, notebooks and diaries left behind by Bolaño were being sifted through. (via The Guardian)

Hmm. This ‘discovery’ smells like smart marketing and promotion to me. But more work by Bolano is always worth celebrating.
