Julio Cortazar was so pleased with Rabassa's translation of Hopscotch that he recommended the translator to Gabriel Garca Mrquez when Garca Mrquez was looking for someone to translate his novel One Hundred Years of Solitude into English. "Rabassa's One Hundred Years of Solitude improved the original," according to Garca Mrquez.The book is highly influenced by Henry Millers reckless and relentless search for truth in post-decadent Paris and Daisetz Teitaro Suzukis modal teachings on Zen Buddhism.Cortzar's employment of interior monologue, punning, slang, and his use of different languages is reminiscent of Modernist writers like Joyce, although his main influences were Surrealism and the French New Novel, as well as the "riffing" aesthetic of jazz and New Wave Cinema.
