The Friar Saves the Day

[The Name of the Rose - Umberto Eco] A medieval murder mystery that illustrates the post-modern mantra of perpetual referentiality...It so could have bombed, but ended up on the best-seller list! I feel that even if a UFO had crash landed into the monastery and Aristotelian texts were found in the wreckage, Eco would have found a way to make it believable. That's how clever Umberto is!
