Read full description of the books:
A collection of essays that shows the same attention to detail and love of fabulist and yarn-spinning as his finest stories. Journalistic pieces, witty observations, travel diaries, these are the sorts of things that you and I might write, but because it's Calvino writing them, it's orders of magnitude better. While it wouldn't be the best introduction to his work, it succeeds magnificently as fan service. After you've made your way through his better novels, go out and pick up Collection of Sand.

Read information about the authorItalo Calvino was born in Cuba and grew up in Italy. He was a journalist and writer of short stories and novels. His best known works include the Our Ancestors trilogy (1952-1959), the Cosmicomics collection of short stories (1965), and the novels Invisible Cities (1972) and If On a Winter's Night a Traveler (1979).
His style is not easily classified; much of his writing has an air of the fantastic reminiscent of fairy tales (Our Ancestors, Cosmicomics), although sometimes his writing is more "realistic" and in the scenic mode of observation (Difficult Loves, for example). Some of his writing has been called postmodern, reflecting on literature and the act of reading, while some has been labeled magical realist, others fables, others simply "modern". He wrote: "My working method has more often than not involved the subtraction of weight. I have tried to remove weight, sometimes from people, sometimes from heavenly bodies, sometimes from cities; above all I have tried to remove weight from the structure of stories and from language."
