The reader’s option, his personal montage of the elements in the tale, will in each case be the book he has chosen to read. 1 Hopscotch, by Julio Cortázar, Pantheon Books, New York, 1966. “I’d like a bloody castle,” the fat diner had said. Why did I go into the Polidor restaurant? Why, since I’m asking that kind of question, did I buy a book I probably wouldn’t read? (The adverb was already a trick, because more than once it had occurred to me to buy books with the tacit certainty that they would be lost forever in the bookcase, and yet I bought them; the enigma was in buying them, in the motive that possibly demanded that useless possession).
And in back there is fear, the refusal to admit what was thrown into my face tonight by a mirror, a fat diner, a book opened haphazardly, a smell of must coming from a doorway. But listen to me now, even though you’re sleeping by yourself in your apartment on the Rue de la Clef: silence is also betrayal. I’ll think to the very end that I might have been wrong, that the evidence they stain you with against me, which vomits me up every morning into a life I no longer want, is born perhaps from the fact that I didn’t know how to find the real order and that you yourself never understood what was going on, Hélène, that you didn’t understand the death of the boy in the hospital, Monsieur Ochs’s doll, Celia’s weeping, that you simply played your cards badly, you invented a great game that prophesied you into what you weren’t, which I still persist in wanting you not to be.
I picked it up and it was beating, it was a human heart and it was beating, then I took it to a fountain and washed it the best I could because it was covered with leaves and dust, and I went to turn it in to the police station on the Rue de l’Abbaye. That’s completely false, Marrast says. You washed it but then you wrapped it disrespectfully in an old newspaper and put it in your jacket pocket. How can he put it in his jacket pocket if he was in his shirtsleeves, Juan says. I was dressed properly, Polanco says, and I took the heart to the police station and they gave me a receipt, which was the most extraordinary part of the dream.
