Recommendation from Bob Letendre:
One if the most interesting books I've ever read is:
"If On a Winter's Night a Traveler" By Italo Calvino.
Critic review: This is a novel that pretends to be a novel that can't get started. Through various editorial and other mishaps, every chapter turns out to be not a continuation of the work we are supposed be reading but the first chapter of another one. There are wonderful parodies here, of Borges, of French thrillers, Japanese erotic fiction, political allegories, Latin American magical realism. And in the end the disparate stories do add up to an ironic but tender happy ending. The two readers we have kept meeting manage to get together and stay together.
