Why read the classics? by Italo Calvino( Book )
43 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,146 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
Marcovaldo, or, The seasons in the city by Italo Calvino( Book )
135 editions published between 1963 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,019 libraries worldwide
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

Nueva edición revisada.

The road to San Giovanni by Italo Calvino( Book )
27 editions published between 1990 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 779 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
