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 *
