About the Author

Julio Cortázar (1914-1984), Argentine novelist, poet, essayist, and short-story writer, was born in Brussels, and moved permanently to France in 1951. Cortazar is now recognized as one of the century's major experimental writers, reflecting the influence of French surrealism, psychoanalysis, and his love of both photography and jazz, along with his strong commitment to revolutionary Latin American politics.
Suzanne Jill Levine is a leading translator of Latin American literature, and professor at the University of California in Santa Barbara where she directs a Translation Studies doctoral program.

Anyone who doesn't read Cortázar is doomed.--Pablo Neruda
I'm permanently indebted to the work of Cortázar.--Roberto Bolaño
"In this playful and scintillating set of fabulist tales by Argentine master Cortázar, characters are shuffled through shifting realities. Cortázar fans will devour these affecting stories." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
