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.”
Saturday Review
