In 2013, on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Rayuela, Julio Cortázar’s masterpiece, the Instituto Cervantes in Paris organized the exhibition Rayuela: el París de Cortázar, which was accompanied by a catalogue containing essays, photographs from the showing, and the “Notas para un diccionario Cortázar-París-Rayuela,” prepared by Juan Manuel Bonet, the director of the institute at the time
RM has taken up Bonet’s little dictionary, in an expanded and illustrated form, and published it separately as a dictionary of the Paris that Cortázar so loved and that he recreated in his work.
Drawing on his wide knowledge of the European and Hispano-American avant-gardes, Bonet has compiled a dictionary of more than four hundred entries covering the people, places, and periods in the realms of art, music, and literature that have a connection with Cortázar and Paris, the writer’s adoptive city.
