The Sunday Telegraph wrote that “the pleasure of these stories is intense” and it truly is.
Calvino costruisce tre storie sulla scoperta dei sensi e sull’importanza che hanno nella vita di ognuno. From what I have read stories of any size can satiate and I am now happy for their warm abundance.
A King Listens is the embodiment of hearing. Calvino, while great, is hit-or-miss for me, and this was mostly a miss. I don’t think it’s coincidence that the story I liked best was the middle one which focused on hearing.
