It is the year 1327. Franciscans in an Italian abbey are suspected of heresy, but Brother William of Baskerville's investigation is suddenly overshadowed by seven bizarre deaths. Translated by William Weaver. A Helen and Kurt Wolff Book.
"A brilliantly conceived adventure into another time, an intelligent and complex novel, a lively and well-plotted mystery."
--SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
"The novel explodes with pyrotechnic inventions, literally as well as figuratively . . . The narrative impulse that commands the story is irresistible . . . Mr. Eco's delight in his narrative does not fail to touch the reader."
--NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
A part of the "Inferno Follow-up" Collection
