i agree, it's quintessential calvino... the baron in the trees is another favorite of mine. i have read all of his books, i think if on a winter's night a traveller is one of the most hypnotizing texts... even if it gets a bit disjointed between the sections. i think the most coherent story of his was the path to the nest of spiders. they are all fascinating, though.
"it's like the real world, except there's dragons!"

cw, you are missed...
