The loss of memory is Umberto Eco's subject here. After a stroke, an antiquarian bookseller remembers every book he's read -- but he remembers nothing about himself. In this conversation, Eco talks about the difference between memories "made of paper" and vital memories, those transformed by the experience of love.

Read an excerpt from The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana.
