  • 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
  • Breathtakingly inventive

    David Mitchell
  • The most magically ingenious of the contemporary Italian novelists

    The Times
  • Calvino is a wizard

    New York Review of Books
