2666, Part 5: The Part About Archimboldi2666, Part 5: The Part About Archimboldi by Roberto Bolaño
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My favorite book of the five volumes,  this is the best one.  The books tie it all up together even though the story is a departure of the Mexican Setting; we find ourselves in Germany. The book is superbly sublime semblance of the 20th century, an homage to the hundred years of European frustration, filled with jihads and fascist leaders. Jingoism upheld by fascist editors. We feel the train of history pounding us down into the tuberculous streets of post World War One Germany and embryonic Hitler.
