Roberto Calasso's K., Ka, Literature and the Gods, and The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony are available in Vintage paperback.
"Calasso has written a brilliant, eccentric, provocative, annoying,
and thoroughly splendid celebration of a great painter." --John
Banville, The New Republic
"The next best thing to visiting Europe and seeing the painter's work . . . Calasso is one of the most demanding and intoxicating critics writing today." --Los Angeles Times
