If On a Winter's Night a Traveler
List price: $14.00
Italy's most brilliant modern writer shows that the novel is capable of endless mutations. This turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambience, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another. They are the true heroes of the novel, for what would writing be without readers?
