Summer 1972. In Saignon, France, Julio Cortázar receives the galley proofs of Libro de Manuel and decides to correct them away from home. For several days he abandons Saignon and in “Fafner,” his beloved Volkswagen van, he tours Provence in the exclusive company of a few tins of food, some red wine, and a typewriter.
The result of this singular journey is a brief masterpiece in which the most significant focus is not the book that was to be corrected but rather the parallel reflections, the secret workshop that supported it, the way of life that permitted an exceptional existence.
