Numbers in the Dark and Other Stories
A collection of previously uncollected stories from the late Italian fabulist.
This fine collection contains an interesting variety of selections,
from parable to polemic, with complex and challenging characters,
situations, and themes. Some of the older stories have allusions that
may not be apparent to you, but the universal ideas are expressed in a
new and clever way.
Calvino presents a different world view, expressed with wit, humor,
irony, and wicked perception. Students who discover this book will be
rewarded and tempted to read other works by this master storyteller.
