From the Observatory

75.00

Julio Cortázar | New York: Archipelago Books, 2011.

In Very Good condition.

From the Observatory—perhaps Julio Cortázar’s most unconventional work—moves from descriptions of the life cycle of the Atlantic eel to glimpses of the unearthly structures of an observatory built in Jaipur by an 18th-century Indian sultan. The architectural wonder was not merely a place dedicated to astronomical observation but also a space that bore witness to the dreams of those who entered it. With a dream-logic of its own, Cortazar’s haunting photos of this enigmatic place flow into others of Paris at night which flow into his verbal dance.
