Calvino's dazzling post-modernist masterpiece combines a love story, a detective story and a sardonic dissection of the publishing industry in a scintillating allegory of reading. Based on a witty anaolgy between the reader's desire to finish the story and the lover's desire to consummate his or her passion, IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT is the tale of two bemused readers whose attempts to reach the end of same book - IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT by Italo Calvino - are constantly and comically frustrated. THE ARABIAN NIGHTS of our day

“10/10, would marry this book.”

This isn't the sort of book you read on the tube, or the bus, or in your lunch break. You have to be in the right mood, I'd recommend reading it under a pleasantly hot sun or whilst in love (or something).... More
