You go into a bookshop and buy If on a Winter’s Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino. You like it. But, alas, there is a printer’s error in your copy.
You return to the shop for a replacement but it is a totally different story. You try to track down the original but end up with another narrative. This remarkable genre-defying novel traces many different tales but the real hero is you, the reader.
