Internationally best-selling author Umberto Eco is a master stylist whose books, including The Name of the Rose and Baudolino, have been savored by millions around the world. Now, with The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana, Eco crafts another of the ambitious and breathtaking novels that are his trademark.

When book dealer Yambo suffers amnesia, he loses all sense of who he is, but retains memories of all the books, poems, songs, and movies he has ever experienced. To reclaim his identity, he retreats to the family home and rummages through old letters, photographs, and mementos stored in the attic. Yambo's mind swirls with thoughts, and he struggles to retrieve the one memory that may be most sacred, that of Lila Saba, his first love.

Steeped in nostalgia and filled with vivid, sometimes wondrous imagery, The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana is a magnificent addition to Eco's literary legacy.

    " It has an interesting point of view about what momories are, how we see them, how the main character recretes them. "

    " I got this as an audio book - found it be quite captivating. Set in Italy, the descriptions of live then are delightful. The plot concerns a man who loses his memory, and goes on a voyage of rediscovery. "

    " I arrived at p. 310 (some years ago) and finished it today. Surprisingly, this novel's not a page-turner to me compared to his "Baudolino" or "The Name of the Rose". One of the reasons is that the plot is in the past generation as well as its translated version a bit wordy. The good point is that the whole text's illustrated with oldish ads, photos, cartoons, etc. in black and white and in colour we've rarely seen some 60 years ago. "
