Cosmicomics
Title: Cosmicomics
Author:
Оценка: 5.0 of 5, readers votes - 2
Annotation: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. His characters, made out of mathematical formulae and simple cellular structures, disport themselves among galaxies, experience the solidification of planets, move from aquatic to terrestrial existence, play games with hydrogen atoms, and have a love life. Calvino succeeds in relating complex scientific concepts to the ordinary reactions of common humanity.'A poignant, freewheeling account of Creation itself & [Calvino] raises imagination to its exponential maximum.' Paul West, Book WorldItalo Calvino's superb storytelling gifts earned him international renown and a reputation as 'one of the world's best fabulists' (John Gardner, New York Times Book Review). Born in Cuba in 1923, Calvino was raised in Italy, where he lived most of his life. He died in Siena at the age of sixty-one.
