Publisher's Comments

From the internationally acclaimed author of some of this century's most original fiction comes this posthumous collection of 36 literary essays that encourages readers to view old classics in a new light. Calvino writes on why Lara, not Zhivago, is the center of Pasternak's masterpiece Dr. Zhivago, and explains how many odysseys are in The Odyssey.
