Book: If on a winter's night a traveller

Author: Italo Calvino

Details: (c) 1979 Giulio Einaudi; Translated by William Weaver; Translation (c) 1981 Harcourt Brace Jovanovich Inc; Pub Harvest / HBJ c 1981 ; ISBN 0-15-643961-1

Verdict: If on a winter's night a traveller is more fun than I expected but somewhat unsatisfying.

Reasons for reading it: It's one of those Great Books I've been meaning to read for ages. What prompted me to pick it up this time was the thought that it's the kind of thing that Dever would deeply disapprove of.

How it came into my hands: My famous book-shopping spree in Montreal in 2005.
