About the Author: Italo Calvino

Italo Calvino was born in Cuba and grew up in Italy. He was a journalist and writer of short stories and novels. His best known works include the Our Ancestors trilogy (1952-1959), the Cosmicomics collection of short stories (1965), and the novels Invisible Cities (1972) and If On a Winter's Night a Traveler (1979).

His style is not easily classified; much of his writing has an air of the fantastic reminiscent of fairy tales (Our Ancestors, Cosmicomics), although sometimes his writing is more "realistic" and in the scenic mode of observation (Difficult Loves, for example). Some of his writing has been called postmodern, reflecting on literature and the act of reading, while some has been labeled magical realist, others fables, others simply "modern". He wrote: "My working method has more often than not involved the subtraction of weight. I have tried to remove weight, sometimes from people, sometimes from heavenly bodies, sometimes from cities; above all I have tried to remove weight from the structure of stories and from language."

«Este libro trata a la vez de una transición de la adolescencia a la juventud y de una transición de la paz a la guerra. Aquí la guerra es algo de lo que aún se sabe poco y el protagonista es un muchacho que poco sabe aún de sí mismo. Pero los hechos narrados contienen buena parte del futuro;
y en ellos opera la eterna interferencia entre los embates de la historia colectiva y la maduración de las conciencias individuales. Era tema para una novela, de no haber sido por esa necesidad que tenemos de escribir aislando un aspecto concreto para estudiarlo a fondo; de esta manera, se ha ido organizando el libro en tres narraciones, que tienen en común protagonista época ambiente, aunque tengan cada una de ellas un desarrollo independiente. Este libro puede ser una incursión que el autor ha realizado en el territorio de la “literatura de la memoria”, para medirse con el lirismo autobiográfico, y buscar allí los caminos de esa narrativa de moralidad y aventura que lleva en su corazón.»
