The Winners - Julio Cortazar 1965 - Pantheon , New York - First Edition, first printing A bright copy of Cortazar’s first published novel, and his first to be published in English language.

Translated from the Spanish by Elaine Kerrigan.

The winners of a state-run lottery, a cross-section of Buenos Aires citizens who one as a prize a vacation ‘mystery cruise’, wait expectantly in a café for their summons to the ship. Once aboard, they find the ship finely appointed, but mysterious in more ways than they anticipate.
  Julio Cortazar (1914-1984) was an Argentine novelist, short story and essayist, and one of the founders on the Latin American Boom of literature during the 1960s and 70s.
