A young girl spends her summer vacation in a country house where a tiger roams . . . A man reading a mystery finds out too late that he is the murderer's victim . . . In the fifteen stories collected here--including "Blow-Up," which was the basis for Michelangelo Antonioni's film of the same name--Julio Cortazar explores the boundary where the everyday meets the mysterious, perhaps even the terrible.

An interesting but somewhat uneven collection of stories, all of them a bit enigmatic or even surreal. Blow-up, the best known and noted in the title, is actually one of the less satisfactory in the set. The author's insight into the lives of children is one of his best attributes.
