Postscript to the Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
« on: February 25, 2016, 11:45 PM »
Name of the book: Postscript to The Name of the Rose
Genre: Literary
Book publish year: 1984
Rating (out of 5): 4
Brief intro: This book stems from Umberto Eco's account of the genesis of his extraordinary novel, The Name of the Rose, but, like the novel itself, it goes far beyond the particular: '...in March 1978 ... I had the urge to poison a monk.' Along the way, it touches on bad books, ideal readers, historical form, and the metaphysics of the detective story.

Review: Very interesting coment collection about the genesis & writing of the book. A must for The Name of the Rose lovers.
