In my previous post I say that Eco's new book will not be out until Fall of 2012 (which is what the New York Times said, those idiots!). It actually will be released November 8th, 2011! While others stand in line at midnight release parties for Harry Potter or George R.R. Martin to get there hands on the freshest copy - I would do the same for a new Eco. So, please don't bother calling me or emailing me on November 8th - the reading life will be good that day.
