Praise for "Blow-Up and Other Stories"
"[Cortazar] is a unique storyteller. He can induce the kind of chilling unease that strikes like a sound in the night."
""Julio Cortazar is a stunning writer. It is difficult to imagine how he could improve as a writer of short stories."
--"The Christian Science Monitor
"A glittering showcase for a daring talent . . . Julio Cortazar is a dazzler."
--William Hogan, "San Francisco Chronicle
"A first-class literary imagination at work."
--"The New York Times Book Review
""Cortazar displays throughout his stories the ability to elevate them above the condition of those gimmicky tales which depend for effect soley on a twist ending. His genius here lies in the knack for constructing striking, artistically 'right' subordinate circumstances out of which his fantastic and metaphysical whimsies appear normally to spring."
