An unskilled worker in a drab northern Italian industrial city of the 1950s and 1960s, Marcovaldo has a practiced eye for spotting natural beauty and an unquenchable longing to come a little closer to the unspoiled world of his imagining. Much to the puzzlement of his wife, his children, his boss, and his neighbors, he chases his dreams, gives rein to his fantasies, tries-with more ingenuousness than skill-to lessen his burden and that of those around him. The results are never the anticipated ones

Why read the classics? by Italo Calvino( Book )
45 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,183 libraries worldwide
Italo Calvino was not only a prolific master of fiction, he was also an uncanny reader of literature, a keen critic of astonishing range. This is the most comprehensive collection of Calvino's literary criticism available in English, accounting for the enduring importance to our lives of crucial writers of the Western canon. Here--spanning more than two millennia, from antiquity to postmodernism--are thirty-six immediately relevant, elegantly written, accessible ruminations on the writers, poets, and scientists who meant most to Calvino at different stages of his life. At a time when the Western canon and the very notion of "literary greatness" have come under increasing disparagement by the vanguard of so-called multiculturalism, Calvino gives us an inspiring corrective.--From publisher description

Nueva edición revisada. Estas breves historias, algunas violentas, otras amargas, otras misteriosas y muchas grotescas, evocan, directa o indirectamente, la experiencia bélica aún cercana para Italo Calvino; pero la ternura que imprime a sus personajes más crueles, risibles o patéticos, la magia que se cuela siempre por las narraciones más impregnadas de un realismo casi costumbrista y la transparencia de la escritura nos revelan a un autor ;ya en sus comienzos; de una deslumbrante y sorprendente madurez literaria
The road to San Giovanni by Italo Calvino( Book )
24 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 774 libraries worldwide
Assembled and published posthumously, The Road to San Giovanni offers Calvino's reflections on his own life and work. These five elegant "memory exercises" provide a varied and revealing portrait of a writer who was deeply wary of autobiography: from the title essay's moving evocation of the author's relationship with his father ' couched in a lyrical sketch of Calvino's childhood home ' to a charming account of teenage years spent in the glow of the cinema screen, to Calvino's declaration of purpose as a writer in the final essay's visionary fragments. Heartfelt, affecting, and wise, The Road to San Giovanni will appeal to Calvino's existing fans and win new ones

Into the war by Italo Calvino( Book )
62 editions published between 1954 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 546 libraries worldwide
"These three stories, set during the summer of 1940, draw on Italo Calvino's memories of his own adolescence during the Second World War, too young to be forced to fight in Mussolini's army but old enough to be conscripted into the Italian youth brigades. The callow narrator of these tales observes the mounting unease of a city girding itself for war, the looting of an occupied French town, and nighttime revels during a blackout. Appearing here in its first English translation, Into the War is one of Calvino's only works of autobiographical fiction. It offers both a glimpse of this writer's extraordinary life and a distilled dram of his wry, ingenious literary voice."--Page 4 of cover

±Puedo decir que escribir algo tan breve me llevó diez años, más de lo que había empleado en cualquier otro trabajo mío. La primera idea de este relato la tuve precisamente el 7 de julio de 1953. Estuve en el Cottolengo durante las elecciones unos diez minutos. No, no era escrutador; era candidato del Partido Comunista (candidato para completar la lista) y como candidato visitaba los colegios electorales donde los candidatos de la lista pedían la ayuda del partido para los problemas que pudieran surgir. De ese modo, presencié una discusión en una mesa electoral del Cottolengo entre democristianos y comunistas del tipo de la que constituye el centro de mi relato. Y fue entonces cuando se me ocurrió la idea del relato (...). Me puse a escribirlo pero no me salía (...). El resultado fue que quedé completamente incapaz de escribir durante muchos meses...
