A new translation of Italo Calvino's influential last work. Calvino was due to deliver the Charles Eliot Norton lectures at Harvard in 1985-86, but they were left unfinished at his death. The surviving drafts are serious yet playful essays that reveal his debt to the comic strip and the folktale. This collection is a brilliant précis of the work of a great writer whose legacy will endure.Literary Collections
