Pinocchio

Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi
Not available
"Disney’s sentimental depiction of Pinocchio bears little resemblance to Collodi’s unscrupulous puppet. This new translation revives the sardonic wit and black humour of the original." — London Times

"Carlo Collodi’s Pinocchio…is short on Disneyesque sentimentality (there is a talking cricket, but Pinocchio squashes him), long on satire and farce. Geoffrey Brock’s superbly crafted translation and Umberto Eco’s introduction bring to life this tale of gumption and greed." — O, The Oprah Magazine

"The superiority of the Collodi original to the Disney adaptation lies in its reluctance to make the inner motivations of the story explicit….No less than Proust’s novel in search of lost time, [Collodi’s] story is a search for his lost childhood." — Paul Auster

"Any [reading] list, I think, must begin with Pinocchio." — Italo Calvino
