Fin da quando era uno studente collaborò al Corriere della Sera come cronista, redattore e inviato speciale.

Egli è, insieme a Italo Calvino e Tommaso Landolfi, uno dei più grandi scrittori fantastici del Novecento italiano, con all'attivo un grande numero di romanzi e racconti surreali e realistico-magici (tanto da esser stato a più riprese definito il "Kafka italiano"). Il suo capolavoro, Il deserto dei Tartari (1940), è considerato dalla critica il vertice della narrativa esistenzialista italiana,

“What a terrible mistake, thought Drogo, perhaps everything is like that — we think there are beings like ourselves around us and instead there is nothing but ice and stones speaking a strange language; we are on the point of greeting a friend but our arm falls inert, the smile dies away because we are completely alone.”
Dino Buzzati, The Tartar Steppe

“It was at this period that Drogo realised how far apart men are whatever their affection for each other, that if you suffer the pain is yours and yours alone, no one else can take upon himself the least part of it; that if you suffer it does not mean that others feel pain even though their love is great: hence the loneliness of life.”
Dino Buzzati, The Tartar Steppe

“Nel sogno c'è sempre qualcosa di assurdo e confuso, non ci si libera mai della vaga sensazione ch'è tutto falso, che un bel momento ci si dovrà svegliare.”
Dino Buzzati, The Tartar Steppe
