Description

Idols invite respect, admiration, affection, and, of course, great envy. Cort�zar inspired all of these feelings as very few writers can, but he inspired, above all, an emotion much rarer: devotion. He was, perhaps without trying, the Argentine who made the whole world love him. --Gabriel Garc�a M�rquez

Cort�zar's last book is unexpectedly his happiest and most playful, both linguistically and with the vicissitudes of life... Every page reveals that there is no end, because the end is to go farther, to cross all boundaries. Twenty years later Anne McLean restores the joy and liberty of the original to these autonauts. And it seems to me that Cort�zar and Dunlop are still there, on their freeway, alive, happy forever inside a motionless time. --Tom�s Eloy Mart�nez

Anyone who doesn't read Cort�zar is doomed. Not to read him is a serious invisible disease, which in time can have terrible consequences. Something similar to a man who has never tasted peaches. He would quietly become sadder . . . and, probably, little by little, he would lose his hair. --Pablo Neruda

This is a special book, definitely worth reading, one that will alter your view of highways forever. --Chad W. Post

The journey undertaken by Cort�zar and his wife and collaborator Carol Dunlop is quixotic in the largest sense. At one level, it is an adventure stood on its absurd head. At another, it is something graver--a mask of comedy concealing the enigma of an archaic smile. --Richard Eder, The Los Angeles Times Book Review
