Description - Diary Of Andreas Fava by Julio Cortazar
Diary of Andres Fava is pure reflection- on his reading, dreams, conversations, and writing. This unpredictable journal of the protagonist of Cortazar's posthumously published El Examen is peppered with quotes from French poets and American jazzmen. Cortazar's brilliance and irreverence are in full power. Exploratory and honest, Diary of Andres Fava lets us in on his own intimate reflections on literature, music, friendship, love, and the act of writing. It's full of bold jabs and devilish claims. A late-night rap session with Cortazar-he lets down his guard and we have the impossible pleasure of watching this lovable genius think and feel out loud.
