Savage Excel

I'm a huge fan of the use of Microsoft Excel for literary ends, so I think this is absolutely awesome: a friend of mine over at We Understand How Markets Work But We Read Good Too has made a few spectacular graphical representations of the middle section of Roberto Bolaño's The Savage Detectives—the one with the many different narrators.

Like Joyce and DFW, Bolaño is one of those authors that inspires meticulous exuberance.
