You are about to read Mark Nicholls’s review of Italo Calvino’s postmodern classic If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller You might want to position yourself in a comfortable chair before you begin or place a cushion behind your back as we know how arduous it can be to read things off the internet You might also care to prepare a coffee a light snack or to switch a light on before beginningYou might be thinking that this review is not going to interest you since book reviews on books you haven’t read can often be frustrating For starters the writer delves into details about the plot which spoil the surprises a blind reading of the book might create and likewise you are unable to form an opinion yourself and share your thoughts on the text in uestionConversely you might have read the text and are familiar with the second person narration that addresses the reader directly and places them as a protagonist in the book You might think this review an obvious imitation of Calvino’s uniue style and become irate as you read on wondering when the reviewer is going to get around to summarising the plotIn fact you become so irate you search for the book on but are incandescent when you notice each review is also written in the same imitative style and the gimmick becomes so irritating you have to leave the room for a moment to calm yourself downAs you leave the room someone knocks on the door It is a door to door salesman offering copies of Italo Calvino’s novel If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller at a reduced price He begins his sale by saying “You are wondering whether or not this novel is for you or whether you might find a novel with the beginnings of ten separate novels included as part of the plot somewhat bemusing or distracting You are unsure whether to slam the door in my face or to go get your credit card”You slam the door in his face As you return to the living room you notice that Mark Nicholls has broken into your house and is sitting naked on the couch reading Italo Calvino’s novel If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller You are very confused and frightened Feelings of arousal and apoplexy stir up inside you You decide to call the police but Mark Nicholls springs up from the chair as you move towards the phone“You are wondering whether to phone the police to remove Mark Nicholls from your house You are deeply confused as to why this reviewer whose opinions you find facile and banal is suddenly sitting naked on your couch reading the very book you were reading about” he says You look for a blunt instrument to hit him with but can find only a cup You throw the cup but he ducks and it breaks against the wallYou start to sob That was your best cup and there is coffee over the walls and carpet Further Mark Nicholls appears to be swinging his penis at you performing an embarrassing 360° swingaround which slowly hypnotises you into a deep deep sleep When you wake up you are at your desk Mark Nicholls and the coffee stain has gone You wonder why there is a grapefruit in your left hand and an antelope on your sofa Those of you who read only the opening sentence and skipped to the end get a strange feeling of anticlimax

If on a Winter's Night a TravellerItalo CalvinoJust one word AWESOME You are about to begin reading Italo Calvino's new novel If on a winter's night a traveller Relax Let the world around you fade The opening line of this unusual book really fades the world around you and immerses you in a mystical eccentric surreal world where you are energised right from the scratch to encounter the world which refers to its own existence something which is unprecedented The book is a genius in a way that how it approaches the story narrative of the book is in second person the protagonist is a young male reader known simply as The Reader There is a second character a female reader referred to by the author as the Other Reader The relationship between the two characters is one of the two plot drivers of the book Calvino borrows plot and style from authors of each of different genres inserting them in his novel making it inter textual or based off of many texts The author has a lot to stay with the ongoing story The protagonist of the book is apparently 'you' the reader who then moves through the inter textuality of the novel to come across different manuscripts each of which is interrupted just after 'You' begins to relish it; and 'You' continues to search for a thread through which 'You' can connect these manuscripts however soon 'You' realizes that it's a futile attempt to look for such a thread and that too not before 'You' finds another character facing the same dilemma both of you spans bookshops probable authors of those manuscripts to look for such a thread Eventually 'You' accepts that it's the structure of book those manuscripts are written not to be connected and when 'You' starts enjoying it its structure puzzles prose style just then it ends and 'You' gets the same feeling which 'You' gets after finishing a surreal movie It happens that 'You' start a chapter and feel it was not very good and then Calvino would do something brilliant and ‘You’ would feel wow by what he did as earlier what seemed to be boorish and distracted chapter turns into a great experience and it continues throughout the bookThe novel which can be best described as book within a book about many books can be said as epitome of postmodern literature a perfect example of meta fiction; Calvino proposes that novels could be uickly read by having a computer break them down into lists of word freuencies; he sets down sample lists to evoke whole novels He shows 'You' the developments in modern literature the books which have become prominent examples of contemporary literature in the process he depicts human nature about possessions while spanning 'You' through a bookshop to finally arrive at If on a winter's night a traveller But you know you must never allow yourself to be awed that among them there extend acres and acres the Books You needn't read the Books Made For Purposes Other Than Reading Books Read Even Before You Open Them Since They Belong To The Category Of Books Read Before Written And thus you pass the outer girdle of ramparts but then you are attacked by the infantry of Books That If You Had More Than One Life You Would Certainly Also Read But Unfortunately Your Days Are Numbered; but this relative relief is then undermined by the ambush of Books Read Long Ago Which It's Now Time to Reread and The Books You've Always Pretended to Have Read And Now It's Time to Sit Down and Really Read Themyou have turned toward a stack of If on

When I was young in the 1950’s the whole family would gather around our ancient rabbit eared black white TV when the postwar sensation Perry Como came on And every week he’d start out by singing ‘Dream along with me I’m on my way to the Stars’That’s sorta like where the magician Calvino sends us in this bemusing and magical romp through the strawberry fields of our imaginations and hisHis book is the very stuff dreams are made onHe uses everything but the kitchen sink as the components for this Rube Goldbergian literary contraption aimed at one thing onlyOur SHEER DELIGHTCalvino had his brains stretched uite a bit half starving in the Italian hill country a fugitive from Mussolini’s ‘justice’ while working for the Resistance but post traumatic stress can with an iron and sternly self possessing will be put to bountiful use Witness books like thisAnd we are his beneficiaries in this golden legacy of tales tales that transpire in a magical twilight land halfway between the real and the unrealBut though Calvino’s wildly inventive yarns seem in essence so wonderful he doesn’t allow any whimsical turn of plot to turn back upon itself in a comforting mind fold or even repeat itself assuringly at another point of the book There is little closure and it is all so vibrantly open ended and inventiveSo WHY is he going so strongly against the common grain endlessly changing the subject with each new chapterWell this Italian postmodernist like us is afflicted grievously with the ricocheting catastrophes of each day’s brutal events trumpeted at every fraction of a half turn by the proud press and has no secure footholdFor as Paul Simon wroteYou can’t expect to be bright and bon vivantSo far away from homeOur heart will always be in our first home as Bachelard says in The Poetics of Space and so it is the place where all our dreams have their rootThe modern age has cast us adrift We must begin at the beginning againIf we think back we’ll see how our childhood dreams were rocked to sleep in the shadow of the informing myths and legends of our ageWorking below the surface of reality in our meditations we can knit the scattered pieces of our lives back together with stories like Calvino’sScattered stories Separate stories Like the stories of our everyday nondescript livesAnd Calvino lives in a world leached of its meaning by the press as we doHe lives in an open ended universe As a new book recently put it everything is now uantumnition Grist for the mill of chanceSo Pascal after his life affirming mystical vision he was a man WAY ahead of his time by the way said “man is a thinking reed” He means without God in our lives we are apt to change our mind with every new windBut until we find Him postmodernism is the aegis under which we and Calvino must create our ethereal kingdoms of romanceAnd from thence our unending attempts at magical escapes Until as Forster says we “only connect” our own stories and escapes to the overarching myths that make our minds what they areSo DON’T be waylaid by your frustration in not initially making sense of his fantastic crazy uilt jumble of yarnsAnd don’t get stressed thinking about their place in the story Just RELAX AND ENJOYAnd if you’ve never read Calvino you’re in for the RIDE OF YOUR LIFESo if you’re feeling comfortably relaxed nowOnce in a lifetime along comes a bookThat’s absolutely Perfect for a Long Cold Night of Dream laden Meandering Reading
