Product description


‘A rather wonderful little book, full of wit and erudition' -- Daily Telegraph

‘As commentary on fiction's strategies and possibilities, the book is alive with stimulating suggestivity…exhilarating and poignant' -- Peter Kemp, Sunday Times

‘Calvino will continue to glitter... well into the next millennium and after, a master in the empire of the imagination' -- Ian Thomson, Independent on Sunday


A series of lectures which Italo Calvino wrote in the final year of his life. Drawing on the works of Lucretius, Ovid, Boccaccio, Flaubert, Kundera, Perec and many more, he pinpoints the universal laws and literary values: lightness, quickness, exactitude, visibility and multiplicity.
