time and the hunter

A pen is so much easier to carry than a PDA or a laptop. Whilst that remains true, you’ll have to suffer the occasional hand written entry.

I’ve just started reading Time and the Hunter by Calvino. Peter has also bought himself a copy and he and I have agreed to do some inter-blog notes on it. We haven’t actually worked out how best to tackle it yet, but I scribbled down a few thoughts yesterday that I might as well post here – even if they are almost incoherent. I was a little unwell yesterday and not exactly thinking straight.

It’s possible we’ve set ourselves up for a fall, as I often find that Calvino’s work can be so breathtaking that it leaves you speechless.

When I find the words to express myself properly, I shall make some notes in my wiki: TimeAndTheHunter.
