A chilling novel about the nightmare of a corrupt and brutal dictatorship. The star of Roberto Bolano´s hair-raising novel Distant Star is Alberto Ruiz-Tagle, an air force pilot who exploits the 1973 coup to launch his own version of the New Chilean Poetry, a multimedia enterprise involving sky-writing, poetry, torture, and photo exhibitions. For our unnamed narrator, who first encounters this ´´star´´ in a college poetry workshop, Ruiz-Tagle becomes the silent hand behind every evil act in the darkness of Pinochet´s regime. The narrator, unable to stop himself, tries to track Ruiz-Tagle down, and sees signs of his activity over and over again. A corrosive, mocking humor sparkles within Bolano´s darkest visions of Chile under Pinochet. In Bolano´s world there´s a big graveyard and there´s a big graveyard laugh. (He once described his novel By Night in Chile as ´´a tale of terror, a situation comedy, and a combination pastoral-gothic novel.´´) Many Chilean authors have written about the ´´bloody events of the early Pinochet years, the abductions and murders,´´ Richard Eder commented in The New York Times: ´´None has done it in so dark and glittering a fashion as Roberto Bolano.´´ 1.

Eyewitness provides a rare and fascinating opportunity to hear the events of the century described by those who saw them happen. A wealth of BBC archive recordings, some never previously broadcast, is interwoven with an illuminating commentary by the historian Joanna Bourke. Published in 10 volumes, Eyewitness examines the role and the life of the British people in each decade of the century.In 1951, the Festival of Britain celebrated a more egalitarian and peaceful society. Nevertheless, young men were still called on to fight as conflicts erupted in Malaya, Korea, Cyprus and Suez. Then, as the nuclear threat increased, protestors took to the streets and CND was born.This was the era of Angry Young Men, literate rebels against the old order: also of the Teddy Boy, creator of distinctive fashion, but representing a culture of violence and discrimination as seen in the Notting Hill race riots. Rock-and-roll caused riots of a different kind but produced Britain´s first true pop stars.Alan Sillitoe, John Osborne, Joan Bakewell, Tommy Steele, and Cliff Richard recall aspects of the decade, as do National Servicemen, Teddy Boys, and the black community of Notting Hill.Thought-provoking and moving, these are the voices of the past, speaking to the present. 1.
