A New York Review Books Original Dino Buzzati is a luminary of the mid-twentieth-century Italian literary avant-garde and the author ofThe Tartar Steppe, a modern classic. He was also an accomplished visual artist.Poem Strip, from 1968, unites his various talents in a pioneering graphic novel that relocates the story of Orpheus and Eurydice to a ghostly version of modern Milan. The Orpheus figure is a guitarist and Eurydice is Eura, who is no sooner seen and desired than lost. Her lover follows her into an underworld of temptation and delusion, at once bar, strip joint, hall of mirrors, horror show, and tunnel of love. He tells stories to wake the deadoutlandish tales that open up strange metaphysical perspectives within the selfand returns with a precious secret that may be everything or nothing.

Born in Belluno in the region of Veneto, in northern Italy, Dino Buzzati received his law degree from the University of Milan, but never practiced law. Beginning in 1928, he worked as an editor and journalist for the Milanese daily newspaper Il Corriere della Sera. His first work of fiction, Barnabo delle montagne (Barnaby of the Mountains) (1933), established Buzzati as an inventive writer who evoked the mysteries of ordinary life. Buzzati never linked himself to any literary movement or style, preferring to seek the fantastic and the extraordinary in his often commonplace characters and locales. A talented short story writer, Buzzati published most of his short fiction in Sessanta Racconti (1958), which was partially translated into English as Catastrophe. Here, Buzzati increasingly employs urban settings where machines, instead of quasi-mythical monstrous beings, populate a supernatural world. Buzzati died in 1972.
