Quick Overview

A collection of stories and fables by Italo Calvino. The first part of the collection consists of his early political stories, whilst the second part shifts from politics to everyday life - filling a car with petrol, telephoning a lover or turning on the shower.


Italo Calvino began his writing in his teens. He wrote every day wherever he was and at his death left behind a huge body of work, including numerous stories and fables, many of which have never been published in book form before. The texts collected in this volume span the whole of his career from 1943, when he was nineteen, to 1985 the year of his death.
