Julio Cortazar, Enormisimo Cronopio
      Queremos Tanto a Julio  

homeward bound



A Sample Translation

A sample story from my translation of Julio's Around the Day in Eighty Worlds. Julio reviewed and approved a few stories from the book but died before it was published. He considered the French edition more definitive than the Spanish one.

I have a couple of unpublished pictures and some more writing, etc. that I will post soon. Meanwhile, here's a drawing and a quote (thumbnail at right).

More Translatiions of Julio Cortazar:

For a comparison of three different translators' takes on Cortazar's prose, see my New World/New Words, forthcoming in the fall of 2006 from the Center for Art in Translation.
