Praise for Blow-Up and Other Stories:

"[Cortazar] is a unique storyteller. He can induce the kind of chilling unease that strikes like a sound in the night."

"Julio Cortazar is a stunning writer. It is difficult to imagine how he could improve as a writer of short stories."
The Christian Science Monitor

"A glittering showcase for a daring talent . . . Julio Cortazar is a dazzler."
—William Hogan, San Francisco Chronicle

"A first-class literary imagination at work."
The New York Times Book Review

"Cortazar displays throughout his stories the ability to elevate them above the condition of those gimmicky tales which depend for effect soley on a twist ending. His genius here lies in the knack for constructing striking, artistically 'right' subordinate circumstances out of which his fantastic and metaphysical whimsies appear normally to spring."
Saturday Review


A young girl spends her summer vacation in a country house where a tiger roams . . . A man reading a mystery finds out too late that he is the murderer's victim . . . In the fifteen stories collected here—including "Blow-Up," which was the basis for Michelangelo Antonioni's film of the same name—Julio Cortazar explores the boundary where the everyday meets the mysterious, perhaps even the terrible.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fertile imagination at work. 17. April 1997
Von Ein Kunde
`` A short story can be taken in at a single glance while a work of three hundred pages depends on padding, on pages that are mere nexuses between one part and another. On the other hand, it is possible for everything to appear essential in a short story.''

- Jorge Luis Borges.

Besides being considered among the great modern Latin American authors, Cortazar is also a poet, translator and an amateur jazz musician. This collection of short stories provides us a glimpse of his fertile imagination.

In one story the protagonist's mind gets trapped into a fish's body, much like Kafka's `Metamorphosis'. In `Blow-up', a photograph assumes real life proportions, reminiscent of Poe's fantastic works. The `Letter to a Young Lady in Paris' conveys the perplexity of a young woman who vomits up rabbits. `Continuity of Parks' is a Borgesian tale where the protagonist becomes part of the murder mystery he is reading.

`` In literature it is only necessary to outline the steps. Let the people dance.'' says Anthony Kerrigan in preface to `Ficciones'. This collection is one such piece of literature. His other important work is `Hopscotch'. Along with Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Salman Rushdie, he can claim to be the author of some of the best pieces of magic realism.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fabulous stories about "unreality" of reality. 4. September 1998
Von Ein Kunde
If you want to read creative, inventive, fabulous stories of the unreality of everyday life, you must look back into Latin American Literature for the past 30-40 years. It is all there, Borges, Cortazar, sabato, Garcia Marquez, their stories are so spectacular, they make all other literature pale in comparison, all of Cortazars short stories are wonderful, a collected edition of all his works should come out. they show they magic, pathos, and power of what happens when someone walks down a street, boards a train, and enters another reality, sometimes just be reading a book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Cortazar is brilliant 6. April 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Julio Cortazar is probably one of the best writers of short fiction! I found a collection of his writing by accident years ago while looking through the latin american writers (I was obsessed with Gabriel Garcia Marquez.) I think that anyone would find his haunting characters and facinating story lines to be some of the most compelling in modern literature.
His stories are what I believe would happen if Ray bradbury were to write as beautifully and as mysteriously as J. D. Salinger.

"Anyone who doesn't read Cortázar is doomed. Not to read him is a grave invisible disease which in time can have terrible consequences. Something similar to a man who had never tasted peaches. He would be quietly getting sadder, noticeably paler, and probably little by little, he would lose his hair. I don't want those things to happen to me, and so I greedily devour all the fabrications, myths, contradictions, and mortal games of the great Julio Cortázar." Pablo Neruda

3.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic Reading......Bad Translation 10. Februar 2000
JC is a fantastic writer. I love his material, and have read his work extensively in spanish during my years living in Argentina. I recently bought Blow-up and Other Stories, and was disappointed to find that the translation was terrible. It was very disjointed, and I even thought there were some gramatical errors . It detracted considerably from the story, and the enjoyment of reading. I realise that the style of writing is difficult to translate, but I'm sure it is possible.
Are there other translations of the book? Is there a review planned for the present version?
