Publisher's Summary

Marcovaldo is an unskilled worker in a drab industrial city in northern Italy. He is an irrepressible dreamer and an inveterate schemer. Much to the puzzlement of his wife, his children, his boss, and his neighbors, he chases his dreams - but the results are never the expected ones. Translated by William Weaver. A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book.

Perfect narrator and wonderful story

If you enjoy whimsical stories and short structured forms like those found in other Calvino works, you'll also probably find this delightful, as I did.
