it was amazing

Two extremely intelligent author, the novelist-essayist Eco and the playwright-screenwriter Carriere, talk about their love for books, their obsession of collecting them flavouring the discussion with witty and sometimes incredibly funny stories about the evolution of printing, the history of human folly, global attempts to destroy books, without ever forgetting to nail down how they firmly believe in their indestructibility, because as Eco put it somewhere, books are like wheels, once they are invented, there is no need for any change, they are perfect the way they are.
