Let's break the meme cycle and do something new.

What do you guys think about Italo Calvino? What book is your favorite? Who do you compare him to?

Personally I never know what to expect from him, every book is different.
>>
I love Calvino but holy shit you're exposing yourself as a newfag. Calvino is very commonly discussed, probably top ~20 - 25 (counting "the greeks" as 1 for purposes of this ranking) if you ranked the most talked about authors on /lit/?

anyways if on a winter's night is mad comfy
>>
The only thing I've read of his isn't really by him but adapted by him, Italian Folktales. Fucking surreal, really loved them. So, there's that.

What do you guys think about [an author discussed daily on 4chan /lit/]
"okay"

anyways, he's great, obviously.

Sorry, yes I am a nefag, I try to like this board but everytime I come here people only tall about dfw and Pynchon, gravity's rainbow. Didn't know Calvino was well liked. Which other authors from the last 70 years do you like, if you like him?
>>
I've only read If on a Winter's Night, Invisible Cities and a few short stories and they became instant favourites and go-to books for when I want to cuddle up and am too tired to start anything new. He reminds me of Barth, though I have no patience for Barth's tricks.

N.B. I am a lowly newfag.

In my opinion Cloud Atlas is just a better executed version of Calvino's If On a Winter's Night a Traveler. The whole second person shtick was interesting at first, then just silly.
>>

You know where to go. Never come back.
>>
>>7584013
holy shit GTFO you miserable pleb

The Cosmicomics got me hooked on Calvino and his charming af metafiction
>>
are the designations of fag only temporal
e.g. is a lifelong lurker an old fag eventually despite never posting?
>>
>>7585260
If you came to 4chan after 2009, you're a newfag by default. Everything else is based in your knowledge of meme culture.
