Re: Umberto Eco

S. Rushdie literary review slated Eco's F. Pendulum when the book came out. Eco seemed to love the fact that the literary world could make head nor tail of him. And his academic peers must have tsk tsk'd him many a time over the years for writing these novels.. can just imagine all the bitching and frowning that went on in the academic halls of Italy.

Loved him. A unique rebel and a lover all things cultural no matter how small or trivial.

Funny as Eco's F. Pendulum and Rushdie's Midnight Children would be two of my top ten books of all time.
