About The Book
Italo Calvino’s extraordinary imagination and intelligence combine here in an enchanting series of stories about the evolution of the universe. He makes his characters out of mathematical formulae and simple cellular structures. They disport themselves among galaxies, experience the solidification of planets, move from aquatic to terrestrial existence, play games with hydrogen atoms, and even have a love life.
During the course of these stories Calvino toys with continuous creation, the transformation of matter, and the expanding and contracting reaches of space and time. He succeeds in relating complex scientific concepts to the ordinary reactions of common humanity.
William Weaver’s excellent translation won a National Book Award in 1969
“Naturally, we were all there,” old Qfwfq said, “where else could we have been? Nobody knew then that there could be space. Or time either: what use did we have for time, packed in there like sardines?”
