About the Author
"Italy's most beloved modern writer" (Washington Post), ITALO CALVINO (1923-1985) attained worldwide renown as one of the twentieth century's greatest storytellers. His works--including the novels Invisible Cities, If on a winter's night a traveler, and The Baron in the Trees--have been translated into dozens of languages.

"In story after story, Calvino displays the same singular talent for wresting the profound from the absurd...One of the joys of the collection is the chance to watch his evolution as a writer -- from the purebred fantasy of his early years to the brain-wrinkling experiments of his later, more famous novels...A diverse and entertaining mix...Read this book, please." "A major event in the English language to give even more evidence why the great Italian post-modern master was among the greatest of writers in his sadly truncated lifetime...marvelous, poetic, hilarious, sublime and wholly original tales which could please the brightest and most advanced students of literary post-modernism as well as the brightest and most advanced of pubescent readers...Over the course of years from the time of their invention, the tales first occasioned by 'Cosmicomics' became among the greatest achievements of a writer who couldn't possibly have been more deserving of our era's most fabled literary award." --Buffalo News "Calvino's stories offer us beauty and hilarity while imparting concepts from the hard sciences...This exuberant and humorous collection will appeal to a cross section of readers, including lovers of speculative fiction, fantasy, and literary fiction." --Library Journal --
