  • Ingenious

    Mail on Sunday, *Summer reads of 2019*
  • Breathtakingly inventive

    David Mitchell
  • The greatest Italian writer of the twentieth century

    Guardian
  • Reading Calvino, you're constantly assailed by the notion that he is writing down what you have always known, except that you've never thought of it before.This is highly unnerving: fortunately you're usually too busy laughing to go mad... I can think of no finer writer to have beside me while Italy explodes, Britain burns, while the world ends

    Salman Rushdie
  • A devastating, wonderfully ingenious parody of all those dreary best-sellers you buy at the airport... It is a "world novel": take it with you next time you plan to travel in an armchair

    Lorna Sage, Observer
