Go wild and blow

Julio Cortazar is a revolutionary but one far from home, not a political revolutionary but one that roams the further reaches of the psyche, just beyond where civilization says it is safe to go. Every single one of his many short stories is worth reading. So, if available, get them all.

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 stories collected here - including "Blow-Up;' on which Antonioni based his film - Julio Cortazar explores the boundary where the everyday meets the mysterious, perhaps even the terrible. This is the most brilliant and celebrated book of short stories by a master of the form.

Blow-Up: And Other Stories, by Julio Cortazar
