About the Author

One of the most influential literary figures to emerge from Argentina in the twentieth century, Julio Cortázar is best remembered for his experimental 1963 counter-novel Hopscotch (Rayuela) and for his short story "Blow-up," on which the 1966 film by Michelangelo Antonioni was based. Cortázar was officially exiled by the Argentine junta in the 1970s and spent the rest of his life in France, where he died in 1984.

Reviews

Simultaneously funny and damning--Cortázar makes sure to include the Russell Tribunal's full report as an appendix--the novella is a quick, engaging read, sure to please the author's many fans.

--Publishers Weekly

Everyone should know about this book. It's a real wonder that no one has translated it before now. Reading Fantomas is an amazing experience and everyone should have access to it.

--Cameron Rowe, Three Percent

Fantomas Versus the Multinational Vampires is a blend of narrative genius with deep political philosophical significance, couched in a surreal blend of comic and prose.

--Hans Rollman, PopMatters
