You are about to begin reading Italo Calvino's new novel, If on a winter's night a traveler. Relax. Concentrate. Dispel every other thought. Let the world around you fade. Best to close the door; the TV is always on in the next room. Tell the others right away, "No, I don't want to watch TV!" Raise your voice -- they won't hear you otherwise -- "I'm reading! I don't want to be disturbed!" Maybe they haven't heard you, with all that racket; speak louder, yell: "I'm beginning to read Italo Calvino's new novel!"Strange book. Well, I knew it was going to be weird, and so far it's living up to its reputation. But I like weird, so I'm expecting to enjoy this one.
And as I'm reading these opening lines, the TV really is on, in the next room. Weird.
