Cosmicomics | Italo Calvino

librarianreadseverything:

A really incredible work that is a wild mix of science and prose. The stories took the science of the world and anthropomorphized it. It’s hard to describe exactly where the attraction of the book came in, but it was tangible throughout. The stories are short enough to make it well worth giving them a try. And, as the student who recommended it wrote so elegantly, “Everyone needs a get-away and Calvino created numerous that makes me want to renounce my Earth citizenship and move to the moon.”
