You go into a bookshop and buy If on a Winter's Night a Traveller (1979) by the Italian writer Italo Calvino (1923 – 1985). You like it. But alas there is a printer's error in your copy. You take it back to the shop and get a replacement. But the replacement seems to be a totally different story. You try to track down the original book you were reading but end up with a different narrative again. This postmodern novel leads you through many different books including a detective adventure, a romance, a satire, an erotic story, a diary and a quest. But the real hero is you, the reader.

Cover art from the 1981 Harvest/Harcourt Brace Jovanovich English edition, trans. William Weaver. Cover design by Louise Fili. A hat is also available based on the same publisher's edition of Invisible Cities.
