This is Not the End of the Book: Umberto Eco & Jean-Claude Carriere

This gloriously unusual and dazzlingly smart new book is a conversation between notorious bibliophile cleverclogs Jean-Claude Carrière and Umberto Eco, all about the rich history of the book, and its grim prospects in our digital age. It’s a truly idiosyncratic and gleefully digressive dialogue, educational and engaging on literally every page, and it even features a surprisingly high instance of laugh-out-loud funny bits. We’ve always been fond of these kinds of ‘books about books,’ and this absolute gem is a brilliant and urgent new addition to the genre.
