(Classics) Invisible Cities [64] By Italo Calvino
___

About:
__

In Invisible Cities Marco Polo conjures up cities of magical times for his host, the Chinese ruler Kublai Khan, but gradually it becomes clear that he is actually describing one city: Venice. As Gore Vidal wrote 'Of all tasks, describing the contents of a book is the most difficult and in the case of a marvellous invention like Invisible Cities, perfectly irrelevant.'

* It's really disappointing to see not a single torrent exist of such a classical book. (not even in any format). ENJOY THIS CLASSICAL, ANYWAYS.
