If On A Winter's Night A Traveller, by Italo Calvino
Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers.
If on aWinter's Night a Traveller turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambience, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another.
“a splendidly batty book about books. [...] Offbeat and fun."– White Dwarf
