Readings from Julio Cortazar

julio-cortazar

Julio Cortazar, also from Argentina but a generation younger, takes Borges’ questions of identity and meaning but brings them to a much more personal  level. He was a big fan of EA Poe, of American Jazz (Charlie Parker, Monk), and of hanging around Paris in the 50s. When you’re reading his short stories, keep thinking what he is trying to question.
