By Night in Chile book. Roberto Bolaño, Chris Andrews (Translator). By Night in Chile is a novella, my second book by Roberto Bolaño after my reading last year of the 900 plus page 2666. It is tempting to say the former (an earlier) book is just a shorter version of One has a moral obligation to take responsibility for one’s actions, and that includes one’s words and silences, yes, one’s silences, because silences rise to heaven too, and God hears them, and only God understands and judges them, so one must be very careful.
Roberto Bolaño was born in 1953 in Santiago, Chile, and later lived in Mexico, Paris, and Spain: he wrote nine novels, two story collections, and five books of poetry, before dying in July 2003 at the age of 50. Seven more of his books are forthcoming from New Directions.
By Night in Chile (Spanish title: Nocturno de Chile) is a novella written by Chilean author Roberto Bolaño, and first published in 2000. It was the first of Bolaño's novels to be published in English, with Chris Andrews's English translation, which appeared in 2003 under New Directions. The story is narrated entirely in the first person by the sick and aging Father Urrutia.
This book represents Bolaño's views upon returning to Chile and finding a haven .
This book represents Bolaño's views upon returning to Chile and finding a haven for the consolidation of power structures and human right violation. Among the many acid pleasures of the work of Roberto Bolaño, who died at 50 in 2003, is his idea that culture, in particular literary culture, is a whore. By Night in Chile came out in 2003 and received an endorsement by Susan Sontag; at the same time Bolaño's work also began appearing in various magazines, which gained him broader recognition among English readers

Bolaño published this well-received satirical novella in 2000. The story is told completely through the eyes of the decrepit priest Father Urrutia over the course of one night. The novella is a confession of sorts for the priest, who admits to having worked for Pinochet and his generals, teaching them about Marxism. Over the course of the Father’s monologue, the reader also learns of Urrutia’s success as a literary critic and of his encounters with falconry, when he decides to release a caged falcon.
By Night in Chile is not that type of novel. It cannot be, because Bolaño is a different kind of novelist and because he is no longer resident in Chile
By Night in Chile is not that type of novel. It cannot be, because Bolaño is a different kind of novelist and because he is no longer resident in Chile. Nevertheless, this is a wonderful and beautifully written book by a writer who has an enviable control over every beat, every change of tempo, every image. The prose is constantly exciting and challenging - at times lyrical and allusive, at others filled with a biting wit (Bolaño has dissected the Chilean literary tradition with such gleeful eloquence that the novel may not win him many dinner invitations back in the country of his birth).
