Abstract

Italo Calvino, the author of Invisible Cities, has a character Qwfwq who forgot what happened after falling in love. The ecstatic experience of love overwhelmed his memory. The thread of story was lost. The characters in this story are also unable to recall their relationship. They instead believe several different, conflicting accounts, which are set down here in this novella. The two characters here are unable to belong to one another due to the female’s obsession with quantum physics and the male’s equally detrimental obsessions, both corporeal and ethereal.
