Cosmicomics by Italo Calvino Jonathan Cape 1969 1st Edition

Cosmicomics is a book of short stories by Italo Calvino. Each story takes a scientific "fact" (though sometimes a falsehood by today's understanding), and builds an imaginative story around it. An always extant being called Ofwfq narrates all of the stories save two, each of which is a memory of an event in the history of the universe. The Distance of the Moon, the first and probably the best known story, takes the fact that the moon used to be much closer to the earth, and builds it into a romantic story about two men and one woman in a tribe of people who used to jump up onto the moon when it passed overhead. Other stories include, At Daybreak, A Sign in Space, All at One Point. Without Colors, Games Without End, The Aquatic Uncle , How Much Shall We Bet , The Dinosaurs, The Form of Space , The Light Years, and The Spiral.
