From the publisher

A collection of masterful short stories in Julio Cortazar's sophistocated, powerful and gripping style.

'Julio Cortazar is truly a sorcerer and the best of him is here, in these hilariously fraught and almost eerily affecting stories' Kevin Barry

A grieving family home becomes the site of a terrifying invasion. A frustrated love triangle, brought together by a plundered Aztec idol, spills over into brutality. A lodger's inability to stop vomiting bunny rabbits inspires a personal confession.

As dream melds into reality, and reality melts into nightmare, one constant remains throughout these thirty-five stories: the singular brilliance of Julio Cortazar's imagination.

WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY KEVIN BARRY

'Anyone who doesn't read Cortazar is doomed' Pablo Neruda
