This essay aims to analyze A Hatful of Cherries, a collection of short stories by the Spanish-Australian author Félix Calvino. By taking into consideration both his biographical experience and the main themes highlighted in his stories, travel, memory and migration above all, I will investigate how Calvino creatively tries to make two different world communicate, intersect and connect, thus establishing a dialogue between the Spain of his childhood and modern day Australia.
