Julio Cortázar Blow-Up and Other Stories is the most fun I've had reading, so far, in 2015. Hopefully that joy comes across in my most recent article, Infiltrations of the Surreal: Argetina’s Julio Cortázar, for Macmillan's Criminal Element.

Not sure why but I have always had problems with magical realism and surrealism but you make a case.

Haven't read him. Sounds like I should.

I saw the movie, Blowup, and didn't care for it. Haven't read anything by this Argentinian writer.

Patti, I almost (but not quite yet) prefer magical realism and surrealism to straight fiction these days.

Absolutely. Your type of fiction, Charles.

And probably not your type of fiction, Oscar.
