If On a Winter's Night a Traveller

by Italo Calvino
£7.99   paperback  Vintage (1992)

If On a Winter Calvino's masterpiece opens with a scene that's reassuringly commonplace: apparently.
 
Indeed, it's taking place now.
 
A reader goes into a bookshop to buy a book: not any book, but the latest Calvino, the book you are holding in your hands.
 
Or is it? Are you the reader? Is this the book?
 
Beware. All assumptions are dangerous on this most bewitching switch-back ride to the heart of storytelling.
