La Vuelta al Día en Ochenta Mundos (translates to "Around the Day in Eighty Worlds" in English) is a book by Julio Cortázar released and published in two separate volumes in 1967 "(same year Hopscotch's translation wins the 1967 U.S. National Book Award)". It pays homage to Julio's biggest literary influences while narrating new developments in the world of music during the 1960s, modern art (Dada and Surrealism) and some of the events in regard to America's expanding involvement in other countries. The book also reveals for the first time one of Julio's most adorable pastimes in Paris: playing the trumpet.
