Three tales, each dominated by one of three senses, present a married couple touring Mexico, a tyrant made prisoner of contradictory messages, and a fashionable Parisian and a drugged rock musician impassioned by scents


&#x2018;...continues Calvino&#x2019;s lifelong campaign to add more territory to the empire of the imagination.' -- <i>Time</i><br /><br />&#x2018;In all three stories, intellectual keenness accompanies intense receptiveness to sensuous nuance&#x2019; -- <i>Sunday Times</i><br /><br />&#x2018;In no one&#x2019;s work... has the torch of literature flared so brightly or so reliably as it did in Italo Calvino&#x2019;s immaculate collection of slim volumes&#x2019; -- <i>Independent</i><br /><br />&#x2018;Lean and precise, these dialectical fragments create beauty and profundity from the paradoxes and commonplaces of lived experience&#x2019; -- <i>New Statesman</i><br /><br />&#x2018;The greatest Italian writer in the twentieth century&#x2019; -- <i>Guardian</i>
