RIP roundup …

… Notable Literary Deaths in 2016 | Literary Hub. (Hat tip, Rus Bowden.)


  1. I will read Eco's essay on fascism but I doubt it would convince me to apply that label to Trump.

  2. And oh, a very happy new year to you, Frank, and to everyone else here at Books Inq: Jesse, Julie and Dave :)

  3. Hi Vikram,
    I don't think it would either. And Eco would have resisted the thought. I hd dinner with once. A very bright, modest man.
    And a Blessed New Year to you and your family and friends.
