Cortazar's stories are descriptions of ordinary moments in which something impossible quietly takes place. His characters are all innocent: things happen to them but, if they are responsible for what takes place, their responsibility is not revealed to them. They must make sense of fated events.

About the Author

Julio Cortazar

Julio Cortazar lived in Buenos Aires for the first thirty years of his life, and after that in Paris. His stories, written under the dual influence of the English masters of the uncanny and of French surrealism, are extraordinary inventions, just this side of nightmare. In later life Cortazar became a passionate advocate for human rights and a persistent critic of the military dictatorships in Latin America. He died in 1984.
