This is the first book I have ever tried by Julio Cortazar In this collection I found the best story this one with the Shattered Pillars (Eternal Sky, unbelievable traffic jam in highway to Paris which focus on the relationships being developed *between peoplender difficult or even dangerous situations and the melancholic taste that leaves the ending I *people nder difficult or even dangerous situations and the melancholic taste that leaves the ending I liked a lot the story starring the young nurse miss Cora and admired the multiple narrators who appear with no previous warning in the text This collection of short stories was originally published in 1966 in Spanish translated into English in 1973 and re released by Marion Boyers Publishers UK in 2005 I picked it p at the London Review Bookshop this summerIf I had only read the first two short stories The Southern Thruway and The Health of the Sick I would have given this book 5 stars The first story is about a horrific traffic jam on a major road bringing travelers back to Paris where motorists are essentially motionless for weeks with no help from local residents or government officials The second story is centered around the dying matriarch of a wealthy family whose members ingeniously hide from her the death of her son and sister or so they thinkUnfortunately the remaining six stories do not come close to the promise of the first two and only Nurse Cora a story about a teenage boy who is hospitalized with appendicitis competently cared for by Nurse Cora but badly mismanaged by his diffident surgeon was of interest However this story was marred by rapid and npredictable changes in the narration boy nurse doctor mother which disrupted its flow I would marginally recommend this collection but only because the first two stories were fantastic Reading Julio Cortazar brings back an internal debate I was having with myself after I attended a book group in which we discussed One Hundred Years of Solitude Most the attendees were dismissive of the novel due to what they felt was an incoherent plot structure and nrealistic events within the novel which led me to ponder the difference between naturalistic
