Praise for Blow-Up and Other Stories
"[Cortázar] is a unique storyteller. He can induce the kind of chilling unease that strikes like a sound in the night."--Time
"Julio Cortázar 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 Cortázar is a dazzler."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"A first-class literary imagination at work."--The New York Times Book Review
"Cortázar displays throughout his stories the ability to elevate them above the condition of those gimmicky tales which depend for effect solely 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."--Saturday Review
