MEDIA REVIEWS
"'Umberto Eco has written a novel - his first - and it has become a literary event'" * New York Times Book Review *
"'A novel of stunning intelligence, linguistic richness, thematic complexity'" * Il Giorno *
"'This novel belongs with Voltaire' philosophical tales - in the entertaining guise of an erudite fiction story, it is also a vibrant plea for freedom, moderation and wisdom'" * L'Express *
