I finished If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler a few weeks ago. It’s an excellent short-story-type novel that kept me in wonder. This is one of those times that going into a book blind paid off; I had no idea what to expect and laughed at least throughout. Highly entertaining, and a light read. It reminded me of The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell: the idea that one hidden story persists through all stories the world over.
