Abstract

Considering the relevance of crime narrative in Roberto Bolaño's work, this article aim at exploring the relation between the use of digression and the deconstruction of the crime fiction genre. Digression as a technique aimed at interrupting the narration not only tends to deflect and fragment the story, but also to change the notion of mystery. Thus, we propose to study how digression operates through a constant shifting of the mystery as a subversive strategy which breaks the structure and impedes a canonical reading of the genre.
