I think of Calvino as a fabulist rather than an absurdist, creating modern fables to serve as distorting mirrors of reality. that might be considered absurdist, too, I suppose.

IT rings a vague bell, but so far not loudly enough to identify it.

Quote:
i love calvino too ; the first of his books i ever read was "if on a winter's night a traveler" and i fell instantly in love.

hmm... perhaps this thread will alternately become a list of books that are NOT the one i can't remember, but are worth reading anyway...


That's fine by me.
