Editorial Reviews

Time
Cortázar's ability to present common objects from strange perspectives, as if he had just invented them, makes him a writer whose work stimulates a sense of rare experience.
Neil Millar
This book is a golden nettle. Those who poke at it gingerly and are stung will still bring away tiny splinters of pure gold.
Christian Science Monitor
Saturday Review
Each page of Cronopios and Famas sparkles with vivid satire that goes to the heart of human character and, in the best pieces, to the essence of the human condition.

What People are saying about this

Pablo Neruda
Anyone who doesn't read Cortázar 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.
