    Funeral for a Dog Free read É 109 Funeral for a DogMy sharply intuitive deduction from a very enjoyable reading of Thomas Pletzinger’s Funeral for a Dog is that Pletzinger loves Roberto Bolaño as much as I do and he’s written a book this book propelled by that affection and other affections that is almost as lovable as the great Bolaño himself
