Italo Calvino, The Written World and the Unwritten World: Collected Non-Fictiontranslated by Ann Goldstein – Penguin, January 2023

‘An indispensable writer … Calvino, possesses the power of seeing into the deepest recesses of human minds and then bringing their dreams to life’ Salman Rushdie

The difference between life and literature; the good intentions of holiday reading; the avante-garde; the fate of the novel; the fantastical; the art of translation: these are just some of the ideas in The Written World and the Unwritten World. A collection of essays, articles, interviews, correspondence, notes and other occasional pieces on writing, reading and interpreting books, this work gives us new insight into Italo Calvino’s expansive, curious and generous mind.
