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."

La sensualidad que se desprende de la lectura de estas tres breves obras maestras, y que nos embarga en la fantasía de un perfume muy especial, en el ritual casi mitológico de un peculiar sabor y en la inquietante multiplicidad de un sonido, nos ayuda a olvidar que el proyecto de Italo Calvino era el de completar este libro con los sentidos del tacto y de la vista. Difícil será borrar de la memoria la presencia casi corpórea de los aromas que busca incesantemente ese elegante hombre maduro para su amante, los exóticos platos que despiertan el deseo en ese escritor que visita templos mexicanos o las obsesivas resonancias que amenazan a un rey demasiado poderoso. ¿Quién de nosotros no ha sido alguna vez víctima consentida de la persistente presencia de los sentidos? Surgen entonces los insinuantes fantasmas que pueblan en la sombra nuestra cotidiana rutina…
