The Harvard Square Book Circle, our in-store book club, discusses ITALO CALVINO's avant-garde novel If on a winter's night a traveler.
About If on a winter's night a traveler
Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers.
If on a winter's night a traveler turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambiance, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the storylines that intrigue them and one another.
Walking from the Harvard Square T station: 2 minutes
As you exit the station, reverse your direction and walk east along Mass. Ave. in front of the Cambridge Savings Bank. Cross Dunster St. and proceed along Mass. Ave for three more blocks. You will pass Au Bon Pain, JP Licks, and TD Bank. Harvard Book Store is located at the corner of Mass. Ave. and Plympton St.
