Nobody Twelve dazzling stories from Calvino where his ambition here was to create a ludic fiction that could reflect complex advances in science without losing his playful nature and sense of magic and lightness The stories he wrote were direct attempts to assimilate new thinking in cosmology in recognisably human and comic dimensionsCalvino prefaces his stories with a fact or hypothesis about the universe then he moves on to get inside these vast abstractions with his trademark ualities that give them a recognisable voice which twists around the reader with a nimble and often humorous plot Through his freuent fumbling narrator the unpronounceable fwf Calvino makes the argument that there is no corner of the cosmos that cannot be enlightened by human imagination And as imaginative writers go Calvino was up there with the bestof them Trying to describe such a diverse and entertaining mix in which he wrestles with chaos and order the profound and the absurd is enough to send ones head spinning full of stars Who else could have come up with idea of scooping milk from the moon and grumbling even before theBig Bang Calvino simply had no boundaries he could go off in all directions crossing the literary frontier into uncharted places to show anything is possible if one simply opens the flood gates of the mind How does one simply lump Calvino into a single category? it's almost impossibleAlthough this wasn't the 'Complete Cosmicomics' which features stories plucked from other Calvino books these original 12 tales were than enough to enter Calvino's Universe and come out the other side with sheer delight Even though this was my 8th Calvino he's like a jack in the box that never gets boring no matter how many times you open the lid Faves A Sign in SpaceWithout ColorsThe Auatic UncleThe Light Years

Le cosmicomicheKnew then that there could be space Or time either what use did we have for time packed in there like sardines fwf Been there Seen that done thatBeen where? Where the distance of the moon from the ocean was just a ladder away Seen what? The formation of galaxies A colorless world A time when there was no concept of timeDone what? Lived on the nebulae Lived as a dinosaur fallen in love with a tadpoleA literary cosmos made up of staggering imagination Calvino’s Cosmicomics exceeded the expectations I always have before reading any of his books and it makes me even proud of declaring him as my favorite writer A collection of 12 short stories written by taking cue from random scientific factstheories and re telling of the fragmented tales about evolution of universe through the eyes of our narrator fwf who had been a ubiuitous witness as well as part of everything since the universe was created Sounds uite ambitious especially taking the short story format but that's where Calvino’s talent shines the brightest The relationship established between various scientific concepts bizarre living beings and their lives thereof presents a witty commentary on understanding of the environment and coming to terms with innumerable and inevitable changes that takes place in our lives in natural as well as unnatural or uncalled ways Compared to the uncertainties of earth and air lagoons and seas and oceans represented a future with securityAlso there is a subtle social commentary about the nature of human beings who acknowledge world not as one but as a society governed by numerous borders and boundaries and a fine distinction is sited as to who is who according to the place they belongs to But the others also had wronged the Z'zus to begin with by calling them immigrants on the pretext that since the others had been there first the Z'zus had come later This was mere unfounded prejudice that seems obvious to me because neither before nor after existed nor any place to immigrate from but there were those who insisted that the concept of immigrant could be understood in the abstract outside of space and time But most importantly Calvino has presented a poignant and humorous take on humanly nature feelings and emotions without employing any humans in his narrative yet there are titles and conceptions which constitute a human world There were three of them an aunt and two uncles all three very tall and practically identical; we never really understood which uncle was the husband and which the brother or exactly how they were related to us in those days there were many things that were left vague All the stories accentuates a particular feature of this cosmos in a highly skillful way wherein Calvino has dilated a single idea into astounding proportions of ace story telling and that’s why I can’t really pick a favorite story of mine The names of the characters especially fwf are particularly interesting According to wiki The name fwf is a palindrome The name may be an allusion to the second law of thermodynamics; substituting for f gives W which describes a heat engineComing from a non science background I can’t really grasp all these scientific concepts in their entirety but still marvel at the extent to which Calvino experimented and came up with such brilliant feat of literature This review or rather my gushy ramblings might convey a little about this book and about my love for Calvino so I highly recommend a definite and fantastic review by Stephen M along with reading this book I must add that past and future were vague terms for me and I couldn't make much distinction between them my memory didn't extend beyond the interminable present of our parallel fall
