I've spent this long, postmodernist-free weekend wondering one thing: Is Julio Cortázar a pirate? And if so, is the pirate's favorite postmodernist Julio Cortázarrrr? Because he really looks like a pirate. The beard, the smirk, the wizened face and the ultra-mod mock-turtleneck/tweed jacket combo all support this theory. Personally, I prefer the clean-shaven Cortázar. He was such a nice young translator. Where did it all go wrong?
Note: I considered giving Julio Cortázar a Captain Crunch hat, briefly. Then I considered going to bed.
