Selected stories written by Julio Cortázar
Including many stories never previously published in English, this collection gathers together Julio Cortázar’s finest tales, beautifully constructed fables exploring a surreal, extraordinary world through everyday moments where innocent characters led by fate or chance attempt to make sense out of what is essentially senseless, random reality.
