London SYP Book Club – August 2015 – ‘All Fire’s the Fire’ by Julio Cortazar

fire the fire

Book: 'All Fire's the Fire' by Julio Cortazar

Genre: Short Stories

Venue: Coco Momo, Holborn

The Book/Synopsis:

 Cortazar's stories are like small time pieces, where each polished part moves relentlessly on its own particular path, exercising a crucial and perpetual influence on the mechanism as a whole. Moments jerk forward and retract, reflect and refract: an island at noon from an aeroplane - an aeroplane at noon from an island; the living deceiving the dying and also themselves, about death; fatality by fire in an ancient Roman arena and in a modern city apartment. It is a world that is constantly shifting, upsetting our balance and our peace of mind, a world outside of time that provokes a fascination bordering on terror. Cortazar is the master of the form and this celebrated collection houses some of his finest work.
