Chilean author Roberto Bolaño’s last (posthumous) novel 2666 (2004) has some aspects intriguingly in common with Thomas Pynchon’s V. A full comparative analysis of these two novels would be a daunting task for two reasons. Pynchon’s V. has been so thoroughly analyzed that it is next to impossible to say anything new about it, whereas the novel of recently deceased Bolaño (1953-2003) has not yet received due scholarly attention, and therefore there is scarcely any critical material to lean on or to take issue with.
