Favourite Books #11

Novels about novels. A novel about the reader(s), the writer, the reading and the writing, and the strange relationship between them. A story containing the beginnings of ten other possible stories. A mystery story about the pursuit of unfinished stories. It all sounds terribly clever, doesn’t it? Well, it is.

PS I also love Calvino’s Invisible Cities. And his criticism, collected in The Literature Machine, is also an eye opener.
