Mr. Palomar by Italo Calvino | first chapter | other excerpts
Reminiscent of Einstein's Dreams, this novel consists of Montaignesque reflections on identity, humanity and the universe arranged into a four-dimensional chapter structure. Although the title character's musings are witty and enjoyable, he occasionally comes across as a man without qualities and he pushes silly metaphors in a Heideggerian manner - and no, that's not a compliment.
