Product description

Review

"There are people you’ve never met and yet you miss them when they are gone… Eco’s famously ironic voice is penetrating … The issues Eco addresses are so enormous in their scale they seem insurmountable, yet his measured, erudite commentary assures you that they can be understood and therefore resolved" (Financial Times)

"He brilliantly exposes all that is absurd and paradoxical in contemporary behaviour. Eco’s irony is disarming, his cleverness dazzling" (Tim Parks Guardian)

"A swan song from one of Europe's great intellectuals...Eco entertains with his intellect, humor, and insatiable curiosity...there's much here to enjoy and ponder" (Kirkus Reviews)

"Eco has left us an intelligent, intriguing, and often hilariously incisive set of observations on contemporary follies and changing mores." (Publisher's Weekly)

"Illuminating, entertaining and humane." (Emily Beament UK Press Syndication)

Book Description

A lively collection of essays about the modern world from one of Europe's greatest, and bestselling, cultural giants.
