Author: Italo Calvino
An enchanting series of stories about the evolution of the universe. Calvino makes characters out of mathematical formulae and simple cellular structures.

This is one of my favorite books ever. Short stories begin with scientific theories of the origins of the universe, and turn into fantastic and silly accounts by someone who's been around since the universe began. Full of beautiful and absurd imagery - Calvino had such a great imagination.
