This is a wonderful tale from the incomparable Umberto Eco. It is a tale of Yambo, a rare-book dealer in Milan who suffers memory loss. He can remember the plot of every book he ever read, but cannot remember his name. In an effort to retrieve his past he retreats to his family home and searches boxes of photos, clippings diaries and more. He also relives the story of his generation, Mussolini, Josephine Baker, Flash Gordon, Fred Astaire and more. His life races before his eyes in the form of a graphic novel. Fascinating, nostalgic, funny and full of heart from this beloved author.
