The starting point of THE MAN WHO DID ALL THINGS FORBIDDEN is Roberto Bolaño’s book 'Distant Star' and its main character, Carlos Wieder, a Fascist avant-garde poet in Chile during the times of the dictatorship in the 70's. This provides the basis for Amorales to create an actual investigative office to search for testimonies corroborating the possible existence of Bolaño’s character.
