New Umberto Eco novel to be released in US in November

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Umberto Eco's "Numero Zero," a best-seller in the novelist's native Italy, will come out in the U.S. this fall.

On Monday, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced a Nov. 3 release date for Eco's story of a ghostwriter in Milan caught up in an underworld of crime and conspiracy. Eco is known for his complex plots, and his publisher said the latest will feature "corrupt newspapers," ''imaginary histories" and the "cadaver of Mussolini's double."

The 83-year-old Eco attained worldwide fame decades ago with "The Name of the Rose." His other books include "Foucault's Pendulum" and "The Prague Cemetery."
