Umberto Eco

I think that every human being has a fundamental impulse to narrate stories, and usually people do that with their children. When I published my first novel people asked me, ‘Why did you write a novel? I said, ‘When my children were children I could tell stories to them. When they became adults I didn’t know to whom I could tell stories, so I decided to write a novel.’
