This audio collection from Chilean novelist Roberto Bolao brings together three novellas with political overtones: the eponymous COWBOY GRAVES, chronicling the protagonist's life leading up to his return to Chile when the coup hits; FRENCH COMEDY OF HORRORS, in which a poet answers a ringing pay phone and learns of a secret society called the Clandestine Surrealist Group in Paris; and FATHERLAND, in which the protagonist faces a coup in his country while recalling a lost love. Narrator Anthony Rey Perez has a quietly husky delivery, conveying Bolao's enigmatic writing style and summoning a muted air of suspense. His well-paced narration is thoughtful and understated, allowing the listener to explore the possibilities of the author's stories. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2021]
