IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT A TRAVELLER (VINTAGE CLASSICS)

‘A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say’ - Italo Calvino

Description of book

You go into a bookshop and buy If on a Winter's Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino. You like it. But alas there is a printer's error in your copy. You take it back to the shop and get a replacement. But the replacement seems to be a totally different story. You try to track down the original book you were reading but end up with a different narrative again. This remarkable novel leads you through many different books including a detective adventure, a romance, a satire, an erotic story, a diary and a quest. But the real hero is you, the reader.
Reviews

‘Breathtakingly inventive’ - David Mitchell
‘The greatest Italian writer of the twentieth century’ - Guardian
‘Reading Calvino, you’re constantly assailed by the notion that he is writing down what you have always known, except that you’ve never thought of it before.This is highly unnerving: fortunately you’re usually too busy laughing to go mad… I can think of no finer writer to have beside me while Italy explodes, Britain burns, while the world ends’ - Salman Rushdie
‘A devastating, wonderfully ingenious parody of all those dreary best-sellers you buy at the airport… It is a “world novel”: take it with you next time you plan to travel in an armchair’ - Lorna Sage, Observer
‘A brilliant work of the imagination and the intellect working in union.And, by the way, it’s very funny also’ - Scotsman
