Último combate is a homage to their friendship, gathering all of their col- laborations, including for the first time the entire text of Los discursos del Pinchajeta, hitherto unpublished in Spanish.
In 1955, the painter and sculptor Julio Silva met Julio Cortázar in Paris. From the first moment, there was a spark of genuine friendship and professional respect between the two Julios which lasted until Cortázar’s death in 1984.
Último combate is a homage to their friendship, gathering all of their collabo- rations, including for the first time the entire text of Los discursos del Pincha- jeta, hitherto unpublished in Spanish, in a translation by Aurora Bernárdez and Cortázar himself.
The volume also includes Silvalandia, the text “Un Julio habla del otro,” in which Julio Cortázar describes Silva, the correspondence between Cortázar and Silva, and as an added bonus “La pluma y la tijera,” an interview with Silva conducted by Saúl Yurkievich, a close friend of both the Julios, about their way of working together.
