Hopscotch by Julio Cortázar, Gregory Rabassa

PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Hopscotch Horacio Oliveira is an Argentinian writer who lives in Paris with his mistress La Maga surrounded by a loose knit circle of bohemian friends who call themselves the Club A child s death and La Maga s disappearance put an end to his life of empty pleasures and intellectual acrobatics and prompt Oliveira to return to Buenos Aires where he works by turns as a salesman a keeper of a circus cat which can truly count and an attendant in an insane asylum Hopscotch is the dazzling freewheeling account of Oliveira s astonishing adventures .

The book is highly influenced by Henry Miller s reckless and relentless search for truth in post decadent Paris and Daisetz Teitaro Suzuki s modal teachings on Zen Buddhism .

Cort zar s employment of interior monologue punning slang and his use of different languages is reminiscent of Modernist writers like Joyce although his main influences were Surrealism and the French New Novel as well as the riffing aesthetic of jazz and New Wave Cinema .
