Horacio Oliveira is an Argentinean writer who lives in Paris with his mistress, surrounded by a loose-knit circle of bohemian friends who call themselves “the Club.” A child’s death and the mistress’s disappearance put an end to Oliveira’s life of empty pleasures and intellectual acrobatics, and prompt him to return to Buenos Aires, where he works by turns as a salesman, a keeper of a circus cat which can really count, and an attendant in an insane asylum. Hopscotch is the dazzling, free-wheeling account of Oliveira’s astonishing adventures.
