Translated by Gregory Rabassa, winner of the National Book Award for Translation, 1967

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.

One of a kind, genre smashing post-modern novel by Argentine writer Julio Crotazar. It'd be foolish to try to summarize it, but it's been called "the first great novel of Spanish America." Cortazar suggests you read it out of order. He also wrote the story that was the basis for the Antonioni film "Blow-Up."
