RM publishes a collection of voices that tell us about characters, places and times in the Paris that fascinated Cortázar and that the brilliant writer recreated in his work.
In 2013, on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of Rayuela, Julio Cortázar’s masterpiece, the Cervantes Institute in Paris presented the exhibition Rayuela: Cortázar’s Paris, and published a catalogue that not only included essays and photographs of the exhibition, but also the Notes for a Cortázar-Paris-Rayuela dictionary, written by the writer and art critic Juan Manuel Bonet, director of the Parisian institute at the time.
RM takes up the work in question with the particular interest of expanding and illustrating the Notes, which he now publishes in a precise manner as a dictionary of the Paris that fascinated Cortázar and which he recreated in his work.
Bonet, with his well-known facility for contextualising avant-garde personalities, has created a repertoire of more than four hundred voices that tell us about characters, places and periods, as well as art, music and literature, in relation to Julio Cortázar and Paris, the writer’s adopted city.
