Books and Life

The other day an interviewer asked me, as many do, which book has had the greatest influence on my life.  If, over the course of my entire life, just one book had influenced me more than any other, I’d be an idiot.  There are books that were crucial in my twenties and others that defined my thirties, and I impatiently await the book that will sweep me away when I reach a hundred.
 - Umberto Eco, Chronicles of a Liquid Society (2017)
