Tackle Chilean author Roberto Bolano's hyper-violent, 893-page beast at the pace of 50 pages a week with a little help from an Austin editor and his literary pals (published authors, literature bloggers, history PhDs), who'll expound on the novel's sprawling content by tracking every character via a wiki, charting locations on Gmaps, and keeping a detailed database of each of the tome's 400 deaths, a kill-count that makes Charles Bronson look like he had a Life Wish.
