    Another gutting loss in 2016.

    Not a whole lot to say at the moment, but his books are excellent. Reading Foucault's Pendulum evoked one of those great, "This is everything I like- all together in one piece!" feelings.

    Any other fans?

    As an Italian, it's very humbling and a pleasure to see a writer of my Country being mourn and taken into such high consideration.
    He was a great personality, I didn't always felt on his same wave-length, so to speak, but overall I think the wholw world needs more people like him, for being smart, thoughtful, never predictable.

    R.I.P. Il nome della rosa is the only book I have read by him but I should definitely read more of his work since I really enjoyed that one.
