Alice Allevi, giovane specializzanda in medicina legale, ha ormai imparato a resistere a tutto. O quasi a tutto. Da brava allieva, resiste alle pressioni dei superiori, che le hanno affidato la supervisione di una specializzanda... proprio a lei, che fatica a supervisionare se stessa! E lo dimostra anche la sua tortuosa vita sentimentale. Alice, infatti, soffre ancora della sindrome da cuore in sospeso che la tiene in bilico tra due uomini tanto affascinanti quanto agli opposti: Arthur, diventato l’Innominabile dopo troppe sofferenze, e Claudio, il medico legale più rampante dell’istituto, bello e incorreggibile, autentico diavolo tentatore. E infine, Alice resiste, o ci prova, all’istinto di lanciarsi in fantasiose teorie investigative ogni volta che, in segreto, collabora alle indagini del commissario Calligaris. Il quale invece dimostra di nutrire in lei più fiducia di quanta ne abbia Alice stessa. Ma è difficile far fronte a tutto questo insieme quando, nell’estate più rovente da quando vive a Roma, Alice incappa in un caso che minaccia di coinvolgerla fin troppo. Il ritrovamento dello scheletro di un giovane attore teatrale, che si credeva fosse scomparso anni prima e che invece è stato ucciso, è solo il primo atto di un’indagine intricata e complessa. Alice dovrà fare così i conti con una galleria di personaggi che, all’apparenza limpidi e sinceri, dietro le quinte nascondono segreti inconfessabili. Alice lo sa: nessun segreto è per sempre. E chi non impara a tenere a bada i propri segreti finisce col lasciarsene dominare... fino al più tragico e crudele dei finali.

The Unnamable - so named because he knows not who he may be - is from a nameless place. He speaks of previous selves ('all these Murphys, Molloys, and Malones...') as diversions from the need to stop speaking altogether. But, as with the other novels in the trilogy, the prose is full of marvellous precisions, full of its own reasons for keeping going. ...perhaps the words have carried me to the threshold of my story, before the door that opens on my story, that would surprise me, if it opens, it will be I, will be the silence, where I am, I don't know, I'll never know, in the silence you don't know, you must go on, I can't go on, I'll go on.

Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers. If on a Winter's Night a Traveler turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambience, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another.

The trees had been stripped by a recent wind of their white covering of frost, and they seemed to lean towards each other, black and ominous, in the fading light. A vast silence reigned over the land. The land itself was a desolation, lifeless, without move-ment, so lone and cold that the spirit of it was not even that of sadness. There was a hint in it of laughter, but of a laughter more terrible than any sadness - a laughter that was mirthless as the smile of the sphinx, a laughter cold as the frost and partaking of the grimness of infallibility. It was the masterful and incommuni-cable wisdom of eternity laughing at the futility of life and the effort of life. It was the Wild, the savage, frozen-hearted Northland Wild.
