"Calvino's real subject is fiction. The making of it...and the reading of it....He can be comic, and he is, but for the most part he is serious, positive, celebratory. ...He even includes a description of his novel in the novel. One notes it, with amusement. And then one comes upon another description of it, different but equally persuasive. And then another! It can never be satisfied, the mind, never."Italo Calvino is the author of 'If on a Winter's Night a Traveler', published 1982 under ISBN 9780156439619 and ISBN 0156439611.
