With his influential Ã¢ÂÂcounternovelÃ¢ÂÂ HOPSCOTCH and his unforgettable short stories, CortÃÂ¡zar earned a place among the most innovative authors of the twentieth century. HOPSCOTCH is a nonlinear novel about an Argentinean writer living in Paris; it consists of 155 short chapters that the author advises the reader to read out of order. BLOW-UP and WE LOVE GLENDA SO MUCH bring together the most famous of CortÃÂ¡zarÃ¢ÂÂs short fiction, including Ã¢ÂÂAxolotl,Ã¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂEnd of the Game,Ã¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂThe Night Face Up,Ã¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂContinuity of Parks,Ã¢ÂÂ Ã¢ÂÂBestiary,Ã¢ÂÂ and Ã¢ÂÂBlow-UpÃ¢ÂÂ. These are stories in which invisible beasts stalk children in their homes, the reader of a mystery finds out that he is the murdererÃ¢ÂÂs intended victim, an injured motorcyclist is pursued by Aztec warriors, and a man becomes a salamander in a Parisian zoo. In CortÃÂ¡zarÃ¢ÂÂs work, laws of nature, physics, and narrative fall away, leaving us with an astonishing new view of the world.
