Synopsis: A collection of stories about an Italian peasant's struggle to reconcile country habits with urban life. Oblivious to the garish attractions of the town, Marcovaldo is the attentive recorder of natural phenomena but, at every turn, the city is there to thwart his inclinations.

About the Author: ITALO CALVINO's superb storytelling gifts earned him international renown and a reputation as "one of the world's best fabulists" ( New York Times Book Review). He is the author of numerous works of fiction, as well as essays, criticism, and literary anthologies. Born in Cuba in 1923, Calvino was raised in Italy, where he lived most of his life. At the time of his death, in Siena in 1985, he was the most-translated contemporary Italian writer.
