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.
