Item description for Historias de Cronopios y de Famas (Punto de Lectura) by Julio Cortazar...

This collection of short and humoristic stories is a privileged introduction to the inexhaustible world of one of the greatest writers of the last century. Cronopios and Famas is one of the most-loved books by Julio Cortzar, perhaps the greatest of Latin American novelists; it is delightfully characterized. As the Saturday Review remarked: "Each page of Cronopios and Famas sparkles with vivid satire that goes to the heart of human character and, in the best pieces, to the essence of the human condition."

Description in Spanish: Historia de cronopios y de famas es uno de los libros legendarios del escritor argentino. Postulacin de una mirada potica capaz de enfrentar las miserias de la rutina y del sentido comn, Cortzar toma aqu partido por la imaginacin creadora y el humor corrosivo de los surrealistas. Esta coleccin de cuentos y vietas entraables es una introduccin privilegiada al mundo inagotable de uno de los ms grandes escritores de este siglo y un antdoto seguro contra la solemnidad y el aburrimiento. Sin duda alguna, Cortzar sella un pacto de complicidad definitiva e incondicional con sus lectores.
