Julio Cortázar leads us on a tour of his favorite worlds. We roam through essays on writers and writing, art and jazz, a cat named Theodor W. Adorno, decadence in the French Rivera, nights in Europe’s ministries, and life in Paris and Provence, on feeling not all there and on being an idiot, on the mind and matter and memory, and more.

We meet a man slowly sinking into the ground, a new Napoleon who appears in contemporary Paris, a hand named Dg, an invisible monster, an upside-down fly, a woman who can’t abide yawning, miniature jaguars, girls experiencing first sexual awakenings, and a man who craves ants, among other figures form Cortázar’s fabulous worlds.
