Los cuentos de Cortázar son ritos de humor, de parodia y de ternura, solicitudes de complicidad, invitaciones a l. a. iniciación repentina.

«La autopista del sur», «La salud de los enfermos», «Reunión», «La señorita Cora», «La isla a mediodía», «Instrucciones para John Howell» «Todos los fuegos el fuego» y «El otro cielo»: ocho relatos que constituyen una fiesta de los angeles inteligencia, de los angeles pasión y del genio.

«Me ha hecho muy feliz, escribir. Me ha hecho muy feliz sentir que en torno a mi obra había una gran cantidad de lectores, jóvenes sobre todo, para quienes mis libros significaron algo, fueron un compañero de ruta. Eso me basta y me sobra. »
Julio Cortázar

Reseñas:
«Los ídolos infunden respeto, admiración, cariño y, por supuesto, grandes envidias. Cortázar inspiraba todos esos sentimientos como muy pocos escritores, pero inspiraba además otro menos frecuente: l. a. devoción. »
Gabriel García Márquez
