All fires the fire, and other stories by Julio Cortázar( Book )

316 editions published between 1900 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 2,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Todos los fuegos el fuego offers eight great examples of the creative fullness that encompasses Cortazar's stories. From the exasperated metaphor of human relationships that is "La autopista del sur" through the masterpiece that is "El otro cielo," Cortazar once again paves the way to stories that are a must-read for lovers of the story genre in general. "La salud de los enfermos," "Reunion," "La senorita Cora," "La isla a mediodia," "Instrucciones para John Howell," and "Todos los fuegos el fuego" are a celebration of intelligence, passion, and genius
The winners by Julio Cortázar( Book )

275 editions published between 1897 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 2,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of random people receives notice that they have won a cruise. Once they become passengers onboard the Malcolm, they find themselves tangled in the web of a mystery that is as symbolic as it is ludicrous. The feeling of detachment from one's normal life, typical of vacation cruises, motivates the travelers to undertake the search to resolve the enigma
Cronopios and famas by Julio Cortázar( Book )

354 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 9 languages and held by 2,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Long out of print and now reissued in paperback, Cronopios and Famas is one of the best-loved books by perhaps the greatest of Latin American novelists (author of Hopscotch and Blow Up and Other Stories). 'The Instruction Manual,' the first chapter, is an absurd assortment of tasks and items dissected in an instruction-manual format. 'Unusual Occupations,' the second chapter, describes the obsessions and predilections of the narrator's family, including the lodging of a tiger--just one tiger--'for the sole purpose of seeing the mechanism at work in all its complexity.' Finally, the 'Cronopios and Famas' section delightfully presents in the words of Carlos Fuentes, 'those enemies of pomposity, academic rigor mortis and cardboard celebrity--a band of literary Marx Brothers.' As the Saturday Review remarked: 'Each page of Cronopios and Famas sparkles with vivid satire that goes to the heart of human character and, in the best pieces, to the essence of the human condition'."--Back cover
We love Glenda so much and other tales by Julio Cortázar( Book )

176 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in 9 languages and held by 2,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Passé maître dans l'art du fantastique, Cortazar bouscule l'ordre établi du temps et de l'espace. Ainsi, dans Coupures de presse, une femme participe à une scène de violence dont elle trouvera le récit dans le journal du lendemain et qui s'est déroulée à quelque mille kilomètres de là. Le climat d'angoisse qui sous-tend chaque page reflète évidemment celui de certains pays d'Amérique latine et notamment de l'Argentine. Parfois le problème des disparus est évoqué de façon directe, comme dans Graffiti.Chacune des dix nouvelles composant ce recueil est comme une plongée vers les replis de l'être, où les faux-fuyants et les prétextes n'ont plus cours. On ne revient pas indemne d'un tel voyage
62 : a model kit by Julio Cortázar( Book )

137 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,874 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As one of the main characters, the intellectual Juan, puts it: to one person the City might appear as Paris, to another it might be where one goes upon getting out of bed in Barcelona; to another it might appear as a beer hall in Oslo. This cityscape, as Carlos Fuentes describes it, "seems drawn up by the Marx Brothers with an assist from Bela Lugosi!"
Las armas secretas by Julio Cortázar( Book )

310 editions published between 1959 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 1,791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce recueil de Julio Cortázar propose un panel de textes plus ou moins brefs, en équilibre sur le fil distinguant la fiction de la réalité, le rêve de l'état de veille. Le fantastique, décrit par Cortázar comme "l'autre côté des choses", est toujours en prise avec le réel, où il étend son empire, modifiant le temps et l'espace, les lois de la nature et la logique. Ainsi un homme ne sait-il pas ce qui se cache derrière son besoin d'observer ces poissons fascinants, les axolotls... tout comme ce photographe ne sait pas jusqu'où va le mener sa capacité à observer ceux qui l'entourent. De même cette biographie romancée du saxophoniste Charlie Parker intitulée L'Homme à l'affût qui nous propose le destin d'un homme qui recherche, dans sa quête métaphysique, une ouverture vers un ailleurs... mais lequel ?Voici onze nouvelles dans lesquelles le fantastique est quotidien, le réel hallucinatoire, et les héros traqués, à l'angoisse rancunière
A manual for Manuel by Julio Cortázar( Book )

151 editions published between 1973 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 1,725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Cuban of our acquaintance describes Cortázar as "the best French writer in Spanish." Not only because he has the candor to set his fiction in Paris, where so many South American writers have found breathing room, but because he has a truly French feel for the miscellaneous, kitchen-sinky, birds-eye texture of dally life. In A Manual for Manuel, you'll meet Andres, Marco, Francine, Lonstein, Lucienne, Patricio, and Susanna: a mixed group of French intellectuals and "Argentines who don't know what they're doing" in Paris. Together they make up "the Screwery," a collective that's more "pataphysical" than strictly revolutionary - involved in projects as diverse as collecting a scrapbook of newspaper clippings for Manuel (Patricio and Susanna's baby son), guerrilla theatre in department stores, counterfeiting and currency smuggling, and, grandest of all, the kidnapping of a bigwig from a multinational corporation in return for the release of captured revolutionaries in Latin America. Cortázar's narrative, as we've come to expect, is totally fractured into digressions, essays, undifferentiated dialogue, philosophical meditation, Finnegan's Wake-ish pun-prose, letters, Telexes, etc. Even the book's big, wonderful action scene (this charming crew's disastrous kidnap attempt) is muffled under all the stylistic swaddling. Cortázar is often at his best here: writing about a large group of friends, making them individual yet coherent - smart people being confused together. But the book suffers by comparison with his earlier, more substantial Hopscotch; even in Rabassa's adept and sympathetic translation, Manuel seems to lack the intensity and rich ambience we look for in prime Cortázar."--Kirkus
Bestiario by Julio Cortázar( Book )

306 editions published between 1951 and 2020 in 10 languages and held by 1,607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

RESUMEN: "Bestiario" es el primer libro de relatos que Julio Cortázar publica con su auténtico nombre. Estos cuentos, que hablan de objetos y hechos cotidianos, pasan a la dimensión de la pesadilla o de la revelación de un modo natural e imperceptible. Sorpresa o incomodidad son, en cada texto, un condimento que se agrega al placer indescriptible de su lectura. Sus relatos nos desazonan porque poseen una característica muy rara en la literatura: se nos quedan mirando, como si esperaran algo de nosotros. Después de leer estos verdaderos clásicos del género, nuestra opinión sobre el mundo no puede seguir siendo la misma

"Seven stories from Cortázar's volume Deshoras (see HLAS 48:5600). Useful afterword by Manguel places work in biographical, literary, and political context. Powerful, often fantastic narrations told from different points of view, compellingly translated by Manguel.

"En este collage donde se recorre un largo y variado itinerario con la misma liviandad que empleara Phileas Fogg en dar la vuelta al planeta, Julio Cortázar vuela, navega y camina hacia escalas tales como: Soliloquio ante una hoguera, Para llegar a Lezama Lima, De la seriedad de los velorios, Grave problema argentino: querido amigo, estimado o el nombre a secas, Jack the Ripper Blues, Del sentimiento de no estar del todo, Julios en acción y muchas más que hacen un recorrido diverso y excitante."

Fin d'un jeu: Des dieux sanglants et féroces surgis d'un passé lointain, l'impossible métamorphose d'un homme en bestiole aquatique, le public survolté d'un concert qui finit par dévorer le chef d'orchestre et les musiciens... et tant d'autres nouvelles où la réalité se craquelle et tend vers le fantastique.Les armes secrètes: Ce recueil de Julio Cortázar propose un panel de textes plus ou moins brefs, en équilibre sur le fil distinguant la fiction de la réalité, le rêve de l'état de veille. Le fantastique, décrit par Cortázar comme "l'autre côté des choses", est toujours en prise avec le réel, où il étend son empire, modifiant le temps et l'espace, les lois de la nature et la logique.

Ultimo round by Julio Cortázar( Book )

152 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maquetada de forma singular, Último round (1969) se divide en dos volúmenes que invitan al lector al juego (una intención que el autor ha remarcado en obras como Rayuela o 62/Modelo para Armar) desde su portada cubierta de pequeños fragmentos textuales a modo de sección de anuncios de diario. Si hubiera que describir esta obra en pocas palabras, éstas podrían ser collage literario: los microrrelatos y microensayos se alternan con fotografías y poemas. Lo curioso de estos relatos es que el lector siempre queda atrapado, a pesar de la alteración de la sintaxis, de la disolución de la realidad, de lo insólito, del humor o del misterio, y reconstruye o interioriza la historia como algo verosímil. De un fragmento textual a otro, la tipografía no se mantiene constante e incluso la orientación del texto pasa en ciertos puntos al pasado para volver más adelante a la orientación normal. Índice: Sílaba viva, Uno de tantos días de Saignon, Los testigos, Del cuento breve y sus alrededores, Noticias del mes de Mayo, Casi nadie va a sacarlo de sus casillas, Álbum con fotos, Silvia, Tu más profunda piel, Las buenas inversiones, En vista del éxito obtenido, La muñeca rota, Homenaje a Alain Resnais, Homenaje a Mallarmé, son algunos de los textos del reconocido escritor argentino reunidos en este libro
