Days [ ) The laughter | Roberto Bolaño, 2004


Haywood Magee, Boys playing football in a residential street in London, 1950

“Even on the poorest streets people could be heard laughing. Some of these streets were completely dark, like black holes, and the laughter that came from who knows where was the only sign, the only beacon that kept residents and strangers from getting lost.”

Roberto Bolaño, 2666 (2004)
