Blow-Up and Other Stories - Julio Cortazar



Blow-Up: And Other Stories by Julio Cortazar / ISBN 9780394728810 / Translated by Paul Blackburn / paperback from Pantheon / cover by Peter Mendelsund


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 intended victim... In the fifteen stories collected here--including “Blow-Up,” which was the basis for Michelangelo Antonioni’s film of the same name--Cortázar explores the shadowy realm where the everyday meets the mysterious, perhaps even the terrible.
