Description - Diary of Andreas Fava by Julio Cortazar
Diary of Andrs Fava is all reflection: on his reading, his dreams, conversations and writing. This unpredictable journal is peppered with quotes from French poets and American jazzmen. Bemused and melancholy, erudite and searching, this irreverent gem is full of autobiographical winks at the reader and hints at themes and techniques Cortzar would continue to explore.
