9780679442059: NUMBERS IN THE DARK: And Other Stories

This collection of diabolically brilliant stories, fables, and "impossible interviews" confirms Calvino's stature as one of the essential writers of the 20th century. Written between 1943 and 1984, these several dozen short stories range over a panoply of concerns--politics, the nature of power, the quest for the truth, and the elusive possiblity of human connection.

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. He 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. Tim Parks was born in Manchester in 1954, studied at Cambridge and Harvard, and moved to Italy in 1980, where he lectures on literary translation in Milan. His translations from the Italian include works by Alberto Moravia, Italo Calvino, Roberto Calasso and Antonio Tabucchi. His account of provincial life in Italy, Italian Neighbours, was an international bestseller.
