Autonauts of the Cosmoroute
Autonauts of the Cosmoroute

“Anyone who doesn't read Cortázar is doomed.”—Pablo Neruda

Autonauts of the Cosmoroute is a love story, an irreverent travelogue of elaborate tales and snapshots detailing Julio Cortázar and Carol Dunlop’s thirty-three-day voyage on the Paris-Marseilles freeway in 1982. Uncovering the freeway’s hidden underbelly, they push life and literature to surreal extremes. This shot of sun is a satire on modern travel and the great explorers, and an intimate look at one of the greatest literary spirits of our time.

Julio Cortázar (1914–1984) was a true giant of twentieth-century Latin American literature. He met and married Carol Dunlop in France in 1982.

Anne McLean has translated the work of Carmen Martín Gaite, Javier Cercas, Ignacio Padilla, Orlando Gonzáles Esteva, and Luis Sepúlveda, as well as other works of Julio Cortázar.
