The 20th century displaying the full breadth of his vision and wit  Written between 1943 and 1984 and masterfully translated by Tim Parks the fictions in N. I agree with other reviewers that it shouldn t be the first Calvino book you read but readers who are already Calvino fans will find plenty of gems in this collection There are 37 widely varied stories vignettes fables imagined interviews and fantasies arranged chronologically and representing work from 1943 to 1985 Of the earlier work I most enjoyed the fables such as The Black Sheep in which a smoothly running village of thieves is thrown into chaos when an honest man moves in Standouts for me in the second half include World Memory about a company tasked with documenting well everything and The Burning of Abominable House in which the narrator tries to reconstruct the events leading to a burned house containing four bodies and a list of abominable deeds committed thereAt its best Calvino s writing engages me on two levels simultaneously the front of my brain relishes the precise language and the cultural commentary while another part of the writing bypasses the reasonable part of my mind and goes straight to the brain stem connecting with something primal and ancient These are the stories I dog eared to read again in the future Conscience The Black Sheep Wind in a City The Lost Regiment A General in the Library A Beautiful March Day World Memory The Burning of Abominable House Henry Ford

    Certainly one of the best short story collections I have ever read It covers the entire span of Calvino's writing career and his early charming and offbeat fables the first written when he was 19 are just as entertaining as the mature and complex thought experiments of his later work There are very few Calvino stories remaining that I haven't yet read Numbers in the Dark includes extracts from unfinished and unpublished novels tha

    Hit or miss collection of shorts An amusing seuence of interviews with various persons Montezuma a thoughtful troglodyte Henry Ford Casanova Some repeats otherwise with other volumesVery effective in some items such as The Burning of the Abominable House and The ueen's Necklace which stand out Others are a bit too clever but still cool The General in the Library The Workshop Hen Beheading the Heads and The Lost Regimen
