"The pieces collected here range from the early 1950s to his last interview, completed just before his sudden death in 1985. Apart from shedding light on his own formative experiences and evolution as an author, Calvino's autobiographical writings also examine the major events of twentieth-century history from a very personal viewpoint: his memories of Fascism in San Remo in the 1930s, his participation in the Resistance in the Ligurian hills in the 1940s, his militant communism in the early 1950s, and his exit from the Italian Communist Party in 1957."--BOOK JACKET." ;
