The #1 international bestseller, from Umberto Eco, author of The Name of the Rose
Vintage Eco . . . the book is a triumph. New York Review of Books
Nineteenth-century Europe from Turin to Prague to Paris abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious. Jesuits plot against Freemasons. Italian republicans strangle priests with their own intestines. French criminals plan bombings by day and celebrate Black Masses at night. Every nation has its own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres. Conspiracies rule history. From the unification of Italy to the Paris Commune to the Dreyfus Affair to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Europe is in tumult and everyone needs a scapegoat. But what if, behind all of these conspiracies, both real and imagined, lay one lone man?
[Eco] demonstrates once again that his is a voice that compels our attention San Francisco Chronicle
Choreographed by a truth that is itself so strange a novelist need hardly expand on it to produce a wondrous tale . . . Eco is to be applauded for bringing this stranger-than-fiction truth vividly to life. New York Times
Classic Eco, with a difference. Los Angeles Times
