And who does he think he is writing about Italo Calvino? It makes you want to punch him. It seems to have done great things for his writing, not to mention his career: in less than a year of his thirtieth birthday, he already had two books out. Since then, he has had no trouble finding a publisher for his novels, poems, plays, investigative works, or encyclopedias, the first of which to appear in English was his series The Neighborhood.
I thought Calvino would be the best place to start. Everyone loves Calvino. In the fictional account of his nonfiction life, he mostly dreams. At times, Mister Calvino can even be an intellectual grump as he seems in Hermit in Paris , which might as well have been titled Asshole in Paris. At one point he thinks, "when one is thinking one is interrupted as though one was doing nothing at all," in response to the conversations passersby force on him. Afterwards they invent ten new rules, five each to see who wins.
Perhaps its publisher Transbooks has something to do with it. Based in India where publishing is certainly much cheaper where his translator lives, Transbooks exclusively publishes Portuguese fiction, so exclusively that they are almost impossible to find.

Nor would it be too far from Mexican writer, Mr. Mario Bellatin, who has been receiving hordes of international intention, so much that he has recently agreed to publish some books in French translations before their Spanish originals. He is one of those cool authors.
He also has a prosthetic limb and several different attachments, like the villain from Enter the Dragon. They begin and they end.
enter You must swim or drown in his massively small and ordinary narratives. Try this one from City Lights Books, Beauty Salon : Our gay narrator never named starts off cutting hair in a salon owned by a Japanese family, until he can earn enough money to buy his own. Around this time men in the city fall ill; plague is suspect. His clients arrive dying. Thus, his upscale, baroque barber shop becomes a hospice for the terminally ill very appropriately called the Terminal. And voila: hair stylist transforms into nurse.
Much of what keeps Beauty Salon interesting is its allusiveness. At first, there seems to be a plague, affecting mostly men, who patronize the parlor.
