Among the texts discussed in this presentation are the novels and manifestos published by the so-called “Crack” Mexican novelists—Jorge Volpi, Ignacio Padilla, et. al.—the McOndo pop- leaning writers from throughout Latin America led by the Chilean novelist Alberto Fuguet, and the early novels of Roberto Bolaño. These writers captured the imagination of the region’s readers and critics in the annus mirabilis of 1996. 2666, the titular year of Bolaño’s posthumous masterwork, represents developments in the region’s narrative during the last eighteen years, and completes the framework used in these reflections about the contemporary Spanish American novel.
