Umberto Eco (1932-2016) – obituary and advice to young writers

Umberto Eco has died – obituary in The Guardian. Of his novels, I loved The Name of the Rose, which I regularly reread, and also Foucault’s Pendulum. The others were more variable, but all worth the time. I’ve yet to read his latest, Numero Zero. I also enjoyed his non-fiction work, ranging from the philosophical to the essays.

Here’s a short video of his advice to young writers, via Biblioklept.
