    If on a Winter's Night a Traveler is a story about stories, a meta-narrative constructed around the conceit that the reader is also the character. The book alternates between describing the actions of the reader and describing the reader-character's attempts to read a book called If on a Winter's Night a Traveler, the text of which stubbornly refuses to conclude. The story is a playfully postmodern one, an intelligent look at print culture, archival science, and narrative voice.
