"'ow I am a mother and a married woman, but not long ago I led a life of crime' so Bianca begins her tale of growing up the hard way in Rome in A Little Lumpen Novelita. Orphaned overnight as a teenager--'ur parents died in a car crash on their first vacation without us'-she drops out of school, gets a crappy job. At night, she is plagued by a terrible brightness, and soon she drifts into bad company. Her little brother brings home two petty criminals who need a place to stay. As the four of them share the family apartment and plot a strange crime, Bianca learns she can drift lower... Electric and tense with foreboding, with its jagged, propulsive short chapters beautifully translated by Natasha Wimmer, A Little Lumpen Novelita--one of the last novels Roberto Bolaño published--delivers a surprising, fractured tale of taking control of one's fate." --

In English, translated from the Spanish.
