From the Observatory

A non fiction book by

Perhaps Cortazar's most unconventional work, From the Observatory 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 prince. This architectural wonder is not merely a place dedicated to astronomical observation but also a space that bears witness to the dreams of those who entered it. Cortazar's haunting photos of this enigmatic place flow into other images - streets, oceans, night skies - which then flow into his verbal dance with a dream logic all its own. Like fish unaware of why they are migrating, readers will be pulled into this fantastic current.
