    • 1997, Roberto Bolaño, “Henri Simon Leprince”, in Llamadas telefónicas [Last Evenings on Earth]:
      Leprince, que a simple vista está en tierra de nadie, o que a su parecer está en tierra de nadie, de pronto comprende que su territorio (su patria) es el de los plumíferos, el de los resentidos, el de los escritores de baja estofa.
      Leprince, who at first glance is in no man's land, or who, in his view, is in no man's land, suddenly realises that his turf (his homeland) is one of hacks, of sourpusses, of good-for-nothing writers.
