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."

Fue con la presente obra que Italo Calvino inició su andadura en el mundo editorial. Fue publicada en 1.947, cuando el escritor contaba con 23 años. En ella aborda, con una mezcla de "Por quién doblan las campanas?" y "La isla del tesoro", su experiencia entre los partisanos que batallaron contra los nazis y los fascistas. Para tal fin, escoge a la figura de Pin, un niño que ha crecido en un ambiente criminal y que por ello ha debido crecer muy deprisa. Una noche, a ocurrencia de un parroquiano de la taberna dónde a veces va a parar, decide robarle la pistola a un marino alemán, cliente habitual de su hermana. Esa decisión complicará de forma contundente su existencia hasta el punto de ponerle bajo el ojo de los alemanes.
