About the Author:

Italo Calvino was born in Cuba and grew up in Italy. During the war he was a member of the Italian Resistance and joined the Communist Party, although he later left in 1957. One of the most respected writers of our time, his best-known works of fiction include Invisible Cities, If on a winter’s night a traveller, Marcovaldo and Mr Palomar. In 1981 he was awarded the prestigious French Legion d’Honneur. He died in Siena in 1985.

Review:

"Breathtakingly inventive" -- David Mitchell "The greatest Italian writer of the twentieth century" * Guardian * "Reading Calvino, you're constantly assailed by the notion that he is writing down what you have always known, except that you've never thought of it before.This is highly unnerving: fortunately you're usually too busy laughing to go mad... I can think of no finer writer to have beside me while Italy explodes, Britain burns, while the world ends" -- Salman Rushdie "A devastating, wonderfully ingenious parody of all those dreary best-sellers you buy at the airport... It is a "world novel": take it with you next time you plan to travel in an armchair" -- Lorna Sage * Observer * "A brilliant work of the imagination and the intellect working in union.And, by the way, it's very funny also" * Scotsman *
