This collection of interconnected stories is about the evolution of the universe. I only know that because it's what it said on the back cover. I like Calvino, but admit sometimes he's a little too esoteric for me and this, along with its companion book, "t zero," is over my head. It has to do with space, dinosaurs, planets, and something named Ofwfq. Right. Both books are available in one edition called "The Complete Cosmicomics."
". . .in the darkness of the pupils, the mirrored hall of the retinas, in our true element which extends without shores, without boundaries."
