For the first time in paperback a volume of thirty seven diabolically inventive stories fables and impossible interviews from one of the great fantasists of. Certainly one of the best short story collections I have ever read It covers the entire span of Calvino s writing career and his early charming and offbeat fables the first written when he was 19 are just as entertaining as the mature and complex thought experiments of his later work There are very few Calvino stories remaining that I haven t yet read Numbers in the Dark includes extracts from unfinished and unpublished novels that he transformed into short stories as well as embryonic projects that might have developed into substantial pieces had he lived longer for example The Memoirs of Casanova follows a similar pattern to Invisible CitiesI first obtained this volume back in 1996 and I read half of it then I lost it Many years later in 2010 I picked up another edition and once again only got about halfway through it before life intervened and I was distracted from finishing it I wonder if I was subconsciously sabotaging my efforts to read the complete book because I knew that once I was done with it there would be almost no new Calvino left for me to read But finally I bought a third copy and now have read the whole book I am intrigued to discover that my opinion of some of the early stories has changed over the past two decades I always liked them but now I like them even To give one example Love Far From Home now strikes me as poignant and wonderful whereas on my first two readings I regarded it merely as rather good No it is much better than thatBut what amazes me is how many of these stories especially the early ones were never published at all in Calvino s lifetime others appeared only in obscure or ephemeral places perhaps he simply never got round to submitting them anywhere or maybe he forgot all about them and they were only discovered in manuscript form after his death These almost lost stories include some of my favourites The Man Who Shouted Teresa and Solidarity the perfect short fable Some even lacked titles and had to be given titles posthumouslyThe variety seems endless There are tales that are already polished examples of Calvino s brilliance at playing games with definitions The Lost Regiment and A General in the Library being two particularly fine examples of how something a substance a striving can alter imperceptibly into something completely different Other pieces were conceived as political allegories Becalmed in the Antilles or as introductions to books by other writers The Call of the Water or as television scripts Henry Ford or as impossible interviews Neanderthal Man and Montezuma World memory is a science fiction tale written in the 1960s that anticipates the internet It raises some interesting problems of identity and reality and also happens to be a crime story Crime fiction was one of Calvino s many literary interests The Burning of the Abominable House is an OuLiPo story based on the idea of how a computer might write a crime story it is excellent The Other Eurydice is a superb fantasy about the underworld The volume ends with two fwf tales not to be found in the original Cosmicomics collectionI repeat one of my favourite short story collections ever
