About Julio Cortazar

Julio Cortazar was born in Belgium in 1914 to Argentine parents. They returned to Buenos Aries when he was four. One of the true giants of twentieth-century literature, Cortazar was a tireless defender of Latin American self-determination and many of his books were banned in Argentina. He died in Paris in 1984.
