Publisher Comments:

This collection includes stories by established Italian literary figures such as Italo Calvino and Primo Levi as well as a new generation of writers. Aspects of Sicilian and Italian life are explored by Leonardo Sciascia and Goffredo Parise, while Antonio Tabucchi looks at the natures of reality.

Synopsis:

A new version of the "Parallel Text" series, containing nine pieces of contemporary fiction in the original Italian and in English translation. With notes on unusual words and phrases, this is a useful component of language studies and provides an insight into Italian literature and culture.
