Of narration when time no longer seemed stopped and did not yet seem to have exploded Italo Calvino's novel is in one sen. An experimental novel The main character is a reader who can’t finish a book because the print copies are mixed up and he ends up reading first chapters of various novels over and over again He meets up with a woman who has the same problem and he goes on a search to find the rest of the book for both of them Actually there are two women sisters who have different ideas about books and what the purpose of reading is They appear in different guises throughout the story The narrative is labyrinth like as if Borges had written it But it’s not fair to really focus on the “plot” Like many of Calvino’s works this is a work of philosophy than a novel And like all of Calvino’s work there’s a heavy dose of fantasy and absurdity There’s a professor of “Cimmerian literature and Bothno Ugaric languages” which sounded so realistic I looked them up to be sure they weren’t real The book is made up of ten stories; think of them as chapters A recurring theme is messages that he sees around him It’s focused on how we relate to books “Reading is going toward something that is about to be and no one yet knows what it will be” There is discussion of “someone who has learned not to read” He touches on issues with translated books There’s a chapter on ways of reading a book While reading “something must always remain that eludes us” which of course has often been said of poetry I enjoyed his digs at deconstruction and the French scholars such as this passage referring to a conference “during the reading there must be some who underline the reflections of production methods others the process of reification others the sublimation of repression others the sexual semantic codes others the metalanguages of the body others the transgressions of roles in politics and in private life”This I thought was apropos given current concerns about “fake news” “We’re in a country where everything that can be falsified has been falsified paintings in museums gold ingots bus tickets The counterrevolution and the revolution fight with salvos of falsification the result is that no one can be sure what is true and what is false the political police simulate revolutionary actions and the revolutionaries disguise themselves as policemen” I have liked other works by Calvino Invisible Cities; The Watcher short stories but this one just didn’t do it for me I was lost at times in the narrative and had to re read to figure out what was going on and at times didn’t seem worth all the effort But many passages had great insight photo from florencephotoscom
