Julio Cortazar

Julio CortAzar was one of the true giants of twentieth century Latin American literature. Hopscotch, his multi-directional novel of exile, philosophy, love, and death, was hugely influential in the 1960s. Some of his short stories, from collections such as All Fires the Fire and Blow-Up, figure among the very best of the genre. Innovative, hilarious, and haunting, CortAzar's writing pushes the boundaries of expression.
