Savoring it as if it were your honeyed wine
"You have become my parchment... on which I write many things that I had forgotten, as if my hand proceeded on its own. I think that one who tells stories must always have another to whom he tells them, and only thus can he tell them to himself. You remember when I wrote letters to the empress, but she didn’t see them? If I committed the foolishness of letting my friends read them, it was because otherwise my letters would have had no meaning." -Umberto Eco, Baudolino

I love Eco, but I've really only read Foucault's Pendulum....must read more.

Trying again

That and The Name of the Rose for me. I didn't manage to finish The Island of the Day Before, because it proved a bit of a slog. I'll return to it eventually.

Do you know anything about his essays and such?

Re: Trying again

Island of the Day Before is a serious slog for the early stages; I started it about 4 times before I could get into it. Once it got going, though, I was just drawn in and it floated past quite nicely.

(Haven't read essays, didn't get around to Baudolino yet.)
