Notes on Italian texts
Acknowledgments

From Our Editors

Italo Calvino is even more convincing in his mother tongue than he is in his English translations. Unfortunately, it’s usually hard for students to read works of Italian literature without frenetically flipping between the book and the dictionary. New Penguin Parallel Text: Short Stories in Italian collects nine works with parallel translations. From Primo Levi to Antonio Tabucchi, the authors represent an eclectic bunch that make for excellent reading in either language.
