5.0 out of 5 stars Learned Terrace-chat, 28 Aug 2012
This review is from: This is Not the End of the Book: A Conversation Curated by Jean-Philippe De Tonnac (Hardcover)
One of the most delightful conversation books I have read since, well, Milan Kundera's chats on literature.
Carriere and Eco look at the book today from (almost) every point of view: past (incunabula), present (the book in the age of IT) and future (the survival of parchment before all else). They wear a weight of learning with a wholly agreeable lightness of being. I wanted to join in, actually: 'Signor Dottore Eco, don't we like books better than Kindles because they *smell* better?', on which not-wholly-facetious matter I would expect some amusing reactions. But then, since the authentic book is not 'interactive', my question must remain hanging ... This is ideal for the thinking man or woman's holiday, to read on the terrace, in a hammock, by the pool, early in the evening with (and yes, I hazard the cliche) une bouteille de rose to hand. Grazie mille, merci bien, Umberto et Jean-Claude!
