The posthumously published collection Hermit IN Paris offers a unique, puzzle-lie portrait of one of the postwar era’s most inventive and mercurial writers. In letters and journals, occasional pieces and interviews, Calvino recalls growing up in seaside inlay and fighting in the unit-Fascist resistance during WW2, traces the course of his literary career and reflects on his many travels, including a journey through he USA in 1959 and 1960 that brings his droll wit at its best.
