about

The stories in Numbers in the Dark span the breadth of Italo Calvino's career and attest to his mastery of short fiction. Beginning with early works set in Italy during World War II, and drawing on Calvino's experiences as an antifascist partisan fighter, the collection moves into the more experimental territory that would define his later work. Here are speculative&nbspstories on life in the digital world, genre-bending wonders, and "impossible interviews" with the likes of Montezuma and a Neanderthal. For readers new to Calvino's fiction, Numbers in the Dark offers a comprehensive survey and a perfect point of departure.
ITALO CALVINO's superb storytelling gifts earned him international renown and a reputation as "one of the world's best fabulists" ( New York Times Book Review ). At the time of his death in 1985, he was the most translated contemporary Italian writer.
