Umberto Eco and The Prague Cemetery.

Interview with Umberto Eco with a focus on his new novel, The Prague Cemetery. [via The Paris Review]

It opens with this gem of an answer:

Every time that I write a novel I am convinced for at least two years that it is the last one, because a novel is like a child. It takes two years after its birth. You have to take care of it. It starts walking, and then speaking. In two months I will be eighty years old. Probably I will not write another novel, and so mankind will be safe.
