Rezensionen
"The book's style and focus remain professional throughout. ... the author is nimble and shrewd in his explanations of Eco's works and his desire to foster a critical consciousness in his readers. ... this work is essential for anyone with more than a passing interest in Eco." (Andre van Loon, The Cambridge Quarterly, Vol. 47 (02), June, 2018)
