The Distance of the Moon

Published Nov 09, 2020

The Distance of the Moon is a collection of four short stories from Cosmicomics, a book written by Italo Calvino, first published in Italian in 1965.

It was the first time I read one of Calvino’s work, and knowing that this book is a Penguin Modern Classic still did not prepare me for how beautiful and thoughtful the writing is.

Every story in this book is simply magical and unique. Reading it gave me a peaceful serene feeling and I will revisit when I can.
