The Baron in the Trees

Italo Calvino

Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Literature), by Alex

This book reconnected me to my literate soul after I rebelled as skateboarder teenage terror! The Baron and his brother are psychologically tortured by their sister who prepares every meal with the most unpalatable food. She decides to put her snail recipe on the menu and after a failed attempt to organise the snail's escape in the night and being forced to eat the dreadful dish for lunch , Baron Côme decides to climb up a tree and swears he'll live there forever. As Haunting as it is playful this book is a celebration of life, love and of the power of imagination.

'The most magically ingenious of the contemporary Italian novelists' The Times
