Umberto Eco’s first novel, an international sensation and winner of the Premio Strega and the Prix Médicis Étranger awards The year is 1327. Franciscans in a wealthy Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, and Brother William of Baskerville arrives to investigate. When his delicate mission is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths, Brother William turns detective. His tools are the logic of Aristotle, the theology of Aquinas, the empirical insights of Roger Bacon—all sharpened to a glistening edge by wry humor and a ferocious curiosity. He collects evidence, deciphers secret symbols and coded manuscripts, and digs into the eerie labyrinth of the abbey, where “the most interesting things happen at night.” “Like the labyrinthine library at its heart, this brilliant novel has many cunning passages and secret chambers . . . Fascinating . . . ingenious . . . dazzling.” – Newsweek

This is a book which stems from the author's account of the genesis of his celebrated novel, The Name of the Rose, but which, like the novel itself, goes far beyond the particular. Eco's investigation of the mechanics of fiction expands into a debate that encompasses, in a small space, the workings of the imagination, the responsibilities of the novelist, and the blend of invention, research, and distilled commonsense that goes to make up the modern novel. Along the way, he touches on bad books, ideal readers, historical form, and the metaphysics of the detective story.
