‘A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say’ - Italo Calvino

You go into a bookshop and buy If on a Winter's Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino. 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 remarkable 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.

This is not the British Winston Churchill. This Winston Churchill is an American novelist born in St Louis, Missouri in 1871. Both Churchills communicated with each other and because the American Churchill was the first to publish, Sir Winston Churchill published his works under the name Winston S Churchill. The American Churchill was an officer in the U S Navy. He also was a novelist, essayist, and poet. His novels written in a naturalist style often expressed his political views. In 1898 Churchill published his first novel The Celebrity. A Traveller in War-Time was written about the period Churchill spent in England and France in 1917. He speaks of the British people voluntarily reducing their food supply to help the troops and the quality of the British military. Churchill's writing makes his experiences come alive for his readers.
