This book is just amazing. It's more poetry than prose and forces your mind to bend in new ways as you walk through Marco Polo's tales of various cities. Slowly, you realize each is a city you've been in, each is the city you live in. It's a beautiful work of art.

If you liked this, you'll probably also like Einstein's Dreams, which very much borrows from Calvino's format.

I should note that this is part of my private collection, but I'm willing to loan it. I just can't part with it yet.

when i first started reading this i was having trouble getting into it, then remembered what EvaLowrain said about reading aloud, and tried that. it was amazing the way the words just started to flow. i loved the cities themselves, and the dialog with Marco Polo was interesting in spots as well. thanks so much for loaning this to me!

nts: this has been rec'd home by EvaLowrain.

Sorry. This has been home for a long time. I just forgot to make a note of it! This is a PC but I'll lend it out if anyone wants to read it. It's just so beautiful, I can't let it go yet.
