They're only bunnies
how much damage can they do,
why not just eat them? ( )

This is a not-to-be-missed collection of short stories. Many have a surprising hard-hitting twist at the end. Others are more subtle, with what a back cover blurb describes as ‘a sense of unease’ throughout.

All play with reality – what is real? What is a dream? Can reality – both people and deeds - live on and repeat themselves during other time frames?

Highly recommended! ( )

The stories are very hit and miss but when Cortazar hits it's well worth the effort. A very intriguing collection. ( )

Oh, Julio, if I could just have a moment to talk to you. You are up here in your heavenly jazz tree, on a higher branch then where I am sitting, laughing at the sadness of the world stuck in its own grass and mortar rather than taking a ride in the whirlwind of imagination, reading Blow-Up, Axolotl, House Taken Over, Continuity of Parks, End of the Game and other stories in this little book of yours. You play the divine trumpet, buzzing your lips on the horn of plenty, the jazz of words, improvising, taking a look inside, your fantasy being the fun stuff, exciting, the way you take a certain vision, say the room in a house, and come up with a story where the room is taken over by a mysterious presence.

If the man in another story, like Blow-Up, starts saying funny, nonsensical things, then you simply ball up his talking and throw it against your imagination and the story slides into its rightful place. Up here in the tree with your trumpet, no branch is too high for you to climb to pick the fruit of words, a word on each leaf, some pretty exotic fruit up here in your jazz tree.

Suddenly, I hear a voice down below asking: “What is Julio Cortázar doing up in that jazzword tree?”

I freeze, look down at the two men on the ground. “Now that’s really odd,” continues the man, “I thought he was dead . . . and now he’s up in that tree playing his trumpet.”

The other man says, “Let’s get Billy and his friend to cut the tree down with their two-man saw.”

I shout at them: “Please don’t have Billy and his friend cut down this tree – Julio won’t do you any harm.”

“Unless Julio plays his trumpet and all his words start shaking things up,” comes the reply.

I’m trying to figure it all out. I thought you were dead anyway, Julio, but as you always said, that’s only one part of the story. Maybe you are more than dead and came out the other side. If anyone could pull it off, it would be you, around the block and back again, around the day in eighty worlds.

I shout down at the men, “No need to call Billy and his friend. I can recommend Blow-Up and Other Stories, and let Julio go back to playing his trumpet.”

The fantastic and the mundane combine in 'Blow-Up and Other Stories', often possessing the scorpion's sting in their tales. The best stories here make for a memorable collection. They have the quality of disturbing dreams, often with nightmare endings, the terrible realisation of the narrator in 'The Night Face Up', the grisly fate of the Kid in 'The Bestiary'. It's apparent something special lies ahead from the opening tale, 'Axolotl'.

It earns a five-star rating for the highlights. I was less keen on some of the longer pieces in Part Three. So 'The Pursuer', about the jazz man Johnny and his laconic biographer, strained too hard to be cool for my tastes. Inevitably, the wraith of Borges lurked in the shadows of the collection, but that's no bad thing in this reader's opinion. ( )
