“And what’s your name?”
“Wait, it’s on the tip of my tongue.”

-Umberto Eco “The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana”

That is the opening paragraph of the book, and it just pulled me right in. I’m enjoying this book, a different sensibility than our North American authors. Also very literary, as the main character is relating to everything based on books. Translated from Italian.



  1. Yet another sitting on my pile on the nightstand. My brother gave it to me with a mediocre recommendation. But glancing through it, I think that it’s one I’ll enjoy. I’d love a write up of it when you get done (or an email telling me what you thought of it!).

Welcome! I always like to hear what people think of a post, it often leads to a great discussion! I am now responding to comments and questions right in the comments themselves, so other people can follow the conversation.
