Much faster and crazier, like a drink with a mickey. Focused more on architecture than character, many of the stories involve the fabric of reality elongating, telescoping in and out, collapsing on itself and yet, he does this in an immediately readable and rather fun way. One of his brothers was the well-known Italian geneticist. They seem surprisingly lightweight compared with his 1940 novel, The Tartar Steppe, which stands up to anything by the mid-century existentialists.

Por ne pleqeri, pa mundur ti beje balle tundimit, nje mbremje zbet nga anija me nje fuzhnje ne dore dhe niset me varken e vogel drejt perbindeshit. Stefano Roi e sheh qe dymbedhjet vjec, nga kuverta e anijes se babait.
Too much of American society is obsessed with the feeling that materialistic possessions will make us happy and successful, but this fixation can blind us, causing us to lose focus on what is meaningful to us. This model can lead young women on the wrong path to the beliefs of what life and success is. Nell'introduzione al libro ci viene detto che mentre Buzzati lo scriveva si preparava alla morte.

In this particular story, as the girl falls the more the story unfolds such that the falling action actually brings about a rising action and it continues that way. A writer must write in the genre in which he knows best or feels safe.
