Summary

Intricate interior lives are brilliantly explored in these short stories, now presented in one definitive collection as Calvino intended them 
In Difficult Loves, Italy's master storyteller weaves tales in which cherished deceptions and illusions of love-including self-love-are swept away in magical instants of recognition. 
A soldier is reduced to quivering fear by the presence of a full-figured woman in his train compartment; a young clerk leaves a lady's bed at dawn; a young woman is isolated from bathers on a beach by the loss of her bikini bottom. 
Each of them discovers hidden truths beneath the surface of everyday life.
Duration: about 8 hours (07:43:03)
