Antonio Tabucchi

Little Misunderstandings of No Importance

Little Misunderstandings of No Importance

And Other Stories


The short story collection that launched Tabucchi to fame, reflecting on the uncertainties, memories, mistakes and mysteries of life

Eleven short stories pivoting on life's ambiguities and the central question they pose in Tabucchi's fiction: is it choice, fate, accident, or even, occasionally, a kind of magic that plays a decisive role in the protagonists' lives? Set in Paris, Lisbon, Madras and New York and blended with the author's wonderfully intelligent imagination, Tabucchi reflects on the elemental aspects of the human experience, exploring grief, uncertainty, adventure, memory and love.
