Skill alone cannot teach

29 June 2013

Skill alone cannot teach or produce a great short story, which condenses the obsession of the creature; it is a hallucinatory presence manifest from the first sentence to fascinate the reader, to make him lose contact with the dull reality that surrounds him, submerging him in another that is more intense and compelling.

Julio Cortázar

  1. Cortazar! One of the greatest of all time. Well worth a read. Try Around Eighty Days in a World or the Cronopios book. All his work is fine!
