Editor’s Note

“The Joy of Reading...”Although it is constructed as an anti-novel, with each chapter starting a new story and ending with a cliffhanger, this inventive novel embodies the great joy we feel when we start a new book.

From the Publisher

Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers.


If on a Winter's Night a Traveler 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.
