About the Author

The novelist, journalist and painter Dino Buzzati (1906-72) is one of the most important voices of twentieth-century Italian literature. He is best remembered today for his novel The Tartar Steppe and the story The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily, which he illustrated himself and has become a classic of Italian children's literature


[These stories] capture something of the national mood. They portray delicate psychologies, and are themselves psychologically delicate, full of premonitions and subtle turns. * The New Yorker * The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily is one of the noblest books I know -- Lemony Snicket An extraordinary writer... [Buzzati's] writing feels timeless. * The Independent * Out of a gothic tale...Frightening, lyrical, and provocative. * New York Times *
