From the author of The Name of the Rose and Foucault's Pendulum comes a brilliant collection of playful parodies . . .In an upside-down Lolita, Umberto Umberto pursues a granny with 'whitely lascivious locks'. Professor Anouk Ooma of Prince Joseph's Land University addresses his colleagues on recent archaeological findings that shed light on the poetry of Italy before the Explosion. Columbus's landing in the New World is covered by television reporters, commentators and guest experts. We are permitted to see in-house publisher's readers' reports, most of them unfavourable, on such submissions as The Odyssey, Don Quixote, Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, and the Five Books of Moses; and we hear a diatribe, in ancient Greece, against the vulgarity of such upstarts as Herodotus, Thucydides and Plato. 'For sheer exuberant good humour, nothing could surpass Misreadings, a collection of parodies and squibs that began appearing in the 1950s and 1960s, but whose panache has not faded one bit' Marina Warner, Books of the Year, Independent on Sunday 'Made up of vintage, good-humoured games - parodies of think-pieces, spoof essays and carnival pranks' Lorna Sage, Books of the Year, Observer… (mere)

Culled from Eco's work for a literary magazine in the late 50s and early 60s, Misreadings is largely a series of lampoons and satire, exploiting the trends of the time. Much appears dated. The mass man of the Mad Men is approached by structuralist means. Kinsey meets Ho Chi Minh.

That said, there a few jewels, notably Letter to My Son penned in 1964 for his infant son Stefano, such is a meditation on military toys and a need for nurturing a sense of history. Make Your Own Movie is a digression on semiotics and cinema, one so rich as to give notice to those trawlers of Derrida and DFW. ( )

A short collection of Eco's earlier essays, witty and sparkling and original. ( )

Virtuose de l'humour et de l'intelligence, Umberto Eco déploie dans ce livre toute la gamme de son immense talent. Extravagant et véridique, ce recueil se situe à mi-chemin entre les Exercices de style de Raymond Queneau et les Mythologies de Roland Barthes. Amicalement sacrilège, délicatement satirique, l'auteur passe en revue les modes et les moeurs de ses contemporains. Nos codes et nos rites fournissent la matière de ses apologues. On découvrira Nonita, récit inspiré de Nabokov où le jeune héros brûle d'amour pour une octogénaire décatie. On fera aussi ses délices d'une version inédite de l'Ancien Testament et on se délectera de la retransmission en direct de la découverte de l'Amérique par Colomb, commentée en duplex par Luther et Léonard de Vinci.

This is a collection of short stories which are most definitely satire for the intelligentsia. Eco's mind is a database of cultural references, linguistic foolery and razor-sharp wit.

The stories include "Granita," a retelling of Nabokov's famous tale with a geriatric object of desire and "The Discovery of America" which chronicles Columbus' 1492 landing on terra firma via the newscasting techniques used for man's first walk on the moon.

Eco's creativity knows no bounds. As with his other works, an understanding of topics as diverse as Adorno's theories and a Who's Who in the Greek pantheon of classical philsophers is definitely helpful, but not required. Even if the reader does not recognize all the references, she will undoubtedly recognize the talents of one of the greatest authors of our time. If you like to think and read at the same time, try some Eco. ( )
