From the author of The Name of the Rose and Foucault's Pendulum comes a brilliant collection of playful parodies . . .In an upside-down Lolita, Umberto Umberto pursues a granny with 'whitely lascivious locks'. Professor Anouk Ooma of Prince Joseph's Land University addresses his colleagues on recent archaeological findings that shed light on the poetry of Italy before the Explosion. Columbus's landing in the New World is covered by television reporters, commentators and guest experts. We are permitted to see in-house publisher's readers' reports, most of them unfavourable, on such submissions as The Odyssey, Don Quixote, Kant's Critique of Pure Reason, and the Five Books of Moses; and we hear a diatribe, in ancient Greece, against the vulgarity of such upstarts as Herodotus, Thucydides and Plato. 'For sheer exuberant good humour, nothing could surpass Misreadings, a collection of parodies and squibs that began appearing in the 1950s and 1960s, but whose panache has not faded one bit' Marina Warner, Books of the Year, Independent on Sunday 'Made up of vintage, good-humoured games - parodies of think-pieces, spoof essays and carnival pranks' Lorna Sage, Books of the Year, Observer
