Julio Cortázar’s Short Stories in Persian

 A collection of short stories written by the Argentinean novelist Julio Cortázar alongside his interviews and quotes has been published in Persian by Ettefagh publication.
Pejman Tehranian has gathered and translated ten short stories by the Latin American author, titled in Persian “Trivial and Important Things,”  accompanied by a selection of Cortázar interviews and quotes translated by Noushin Jafari, ISNA reported on its Persian website.
Considered as one of the founders of the Latin American literary movement in the 1960’s, Cortázar’s magical realism style has placed him among the famous literary figures of the world. 
Identity is the primary theme in his novels and short stories. His characters frequently lose or swap their identity, or are possessed by an evil spirit.
Another short story collection by the writer, “The Gates of Heaven,” was earlier translated into Persian by Bahman Shakeri.
