This new volume of eight short stories, with parallel translations, offers students of Italian at all levels the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary literature in the original, with the aid of parallel translations.
 
The selection covers a rich variety of themes and styles, and includes stories by established literary figures such as Italo Calvino and Primo Levi as well as new generation of writers. Aspects of Sicilian and Italian life are explored by Leonardo Sciascia and Goffredo Parise, Dacia Maraini tackles the controversial subject of abortion and Antonio Tabucchi looks at the nature of reality.
 
Complete with notes, the stories make excellent reading in either language.
