Italian noted writer who dominated the literary scene after the war. Some of the earlier work, in his 20's, are more appealing than his later pieces. He is the author of "Italian Folktales" and "Mr. Palomar."

He had a hemorrhage 6 Septmeber 1985 and was taken into surgery; two weeks later he died 19 September 1985, 3:00 AM, Siena, Italy,

A collection of his stories published posthumously, "Numbers in the Dark," translated from the Italian by Tim Parks contains pieces never before published.
