"I believe that every person is a village, with a lot of feuds and sometimes a party."

from the 2008 essay "Despair, compassion, friendship."



 “I have come to the end of this apologia for the novel as a vast net.  Someone might object that the more the work tends toward the multiplication of possibilities, the further it departs from that unicum which is the self of the writer, his inner sincerity and the discovery of his own truth.  But I would answer: Who are we, who is each one of us, if not a combinatoria of experiences, information, books we have read, things imagined?"

Italo Calvino, from Six Memos for the Next Millennium (1985), "Multiplicity," page 124.
