To my wisdom, unavailable in English--and unfortunately, it may well by no means be....

----------

Enrique Lihn, chileno, conocido como uno de los más
importantes poetas latinoamericanos de hoy, había in-
cursionado también en el cuento y el ensayo.
Con Batman en Chile se inaugura en l. a. novela.
El tema es de actualidad: el legendario rey de las his­
torietas viaja a Chile para hacerle un trabajito a la-C.I.A.
Tiene entreveros eróticos con l. a. refrigerada Juana Som- '
mers, el efebo Robin sufre pesadillas con los bombar- .
déos en Vietnam y el héroe se desorienta ante una re­-
volución donde hasta los 'malos' son legales y donde
el poderoso Willie Morgan le debe indicar sus pasos.
La resurrección de los angeles novela de aventuras, con su mar­
co ahora político, y teñida de un humor intencionado y
sutil, perra deleitar a lectores alertas.

from a magazine article--i've copied all textual content that's on hand prior to the paywall. within the first paragraph, number 1 refers to this booklet and the remainder refers to Lihn's profession. the second one paragraph lower than starts off discussing the plot....

The checklist may possibly learn: 1) a Batman caricature made right into a political melodrama; 2) a final minute materialisation of huge socialist utopian modernism; three) a cocktail party within the nation-state honouring the Tarzan actor Johnny Weissmüller; four) an experimental documentary became a Western; and, final yet now not least, five) a piglet jogging within the urban centre, wearing army dresses. I admit the connections could seem imprecise, yet by some means those erratic, it sounds as if innocuous and commonly forgotten activities that happened in Chile within the Seventies and 80s compose a discontinuous lineage of corrosively ironic engagement with political aesthetics. This a little weird and wonderful number of 'provisional failures' constitutes a exhibit of Chile's atypical historical past of fragmented artwork stories, choked with neo-Dadaist humour and unorthodox leftist critique.1

The look-alike crowd is a anxious scene for the real Batman, who in a well mannered way tries[...]

Representantes del Orden Establecido —continuó Mor­ gan— si lo prefiere usted así. Le dolía la mandíbula y el amor propio; deseaba escan­ dalizar a su huésped y agresor, aun a riesgo de provocarlo. Pero éste lo seguía con docilidad, olvidado de todo lo que 110 fuera encontrar una fórmula para expresar su filosofía 40 de una manera convincente e incluso admirable para la mujer común. —Eso es contrario a la naturaleza —argüyó, llevándose una mano al mentón. Juana no pudo dejar de recibir esta sentencia con una risita hiriente, aunque parecía exclusivamente preocupada en acelerar el descenso del pequeño grupo por una escalinata de mármol.

Ticos de Batman eran igualmente reminiscentes— el reper­ torio de los años cincuenta. Una muralla entera, más transparente que el vidrio, se descorrió por sí sola. El espacio interior y el exterior se abrazaron estrechamente como una pareja danzante en la Puerta del Beso, en el momento mismo en que esta alusión a Brancussi era superada, al encenderse, cerca del lecho circular de la ninfa granjera, que parecía cubierto de espuma— una auténtica escultura del Centro de Estudios Visuales Avanzados del Instituto Tecnológico de Massachu3sets, de luz estroboscópica.

A Juana le resultaba difícil reprimir su impaciencia por escapar, no a la justicia que tan obviamente estaba de su parte, pero sí a la impresión de que en un ambiente tal de decrepitud y con semejantes agentes y procedimientos, esa 47 justicia llevaba todas las de perder en un enfrentamiento con sus enemigos de clase. En las salas de espera y en los pasillos del juzgado, la compacta clientela de turno, amontonada en una sombría pasividad, era quizás el primer contingente de invasores. Los Tribunales Populares vendrían luego.
