Description

En este libro, Cortazar ofrece a sus lectores artefactos sutiles, perfectos y desmontables que apelan en igual medida a la sensibilidad estetica, la suspicacia linguistica y la inteligencia descifradora.

Son relatos escritos en los bordes del azar y el ajedrez, de la logica y del coup de des, que apuntan a descubrir nuevas perplejidades ante los viejos enigmas: las pasiones, las vidas imaginarias, los espacios y tiempos paralelos y las ficciones cotidianas. La lengua y su infinito juego de combinaciones es, en estos relatos, protagonista indiscutible.
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION
All Fires the Fire offers eight great examples of the creative fullness that encompasses Cortazar's stories. From the exasperated metaphor of human relationships that is "La autopista del sur" through the masterpiece that is "El otro cielo," Cortazar once again paves the way to stories that are a must-read for lovers of the story genre in general. "La salud de los enfermos," "Reunion," "La senorita Cora," "La isla a mediodia," "Instrucciones para John Howell," and "Todos los fuegos el fuego" are a celebration of intelligence, passion, and genius.
