Read in November, 2008

Calvino's not always my guy, though The Baron in the Trees is a favorite. I read Marcovaldo last November (2008) in Italian and was entranced: with the title character's simplicity and goodness, the futility of existence as he lives it, and Calvino's fertile imagination and wonderfully economical, almost off-handed descriptions.
