tENTATIVELY, cONVENIENCE's Reviews > Hopscotch
The name of this bk refers to its being structured so that the reader can read it either from the beginning thru to chapter 56 OR starting w/ chapter 73 & jumping around, Hopscotch style, in a prescribed manner that doesn't follow 1-56 linearity. I might've read it both ways. I definitely read it the Hopscotch way. Cortázar was an Argentinian expatriate who lived in Paris. This is a novel about his fellow ex-pats & their friends & their lifestyle of artistic & musical pursuits, drinking mate, good conversation, etc.. I'll forever assoicate this w/ the deep pleasure of discussion & study amongst passionate friends. It's particularly associated w/ a small group of intellectuals/readers in Baltimore in the late 1970s.
