Subject: is every person a network and a village?

"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.

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