Product description

Review

A brilliant collection that may change the way you see the world around you (Guardian)

Calvino is on the high wires, on lines of thought strung out above the big international circus' Seamus Heaney (The New York Times)

A pleasure . . . offers new glimpses into the mind of the great writer while also reminding us of Calvino's insatiable curiosity (Independent)

About the Author

Italo Calvino, one of Italy's finest postwar writers, has delighted readers around the world with his deceptively simple, fable-like stories. Calvino was born in Cuba in 1923 and raised in San Remo, Italy; he fought for the Italian Resistance from 1943-45. He died in Siena in 1985, of a brain hemorrhage.

Martin L. McLaughlin is Professor of Italian and Fiat-Serena Professor of Italian Studies at the University of Oxford where he is a Fellow of Magdalen College. He is the English translator of Umberto Eco and Italo Calvino among many others.
