Advice To The Young

Umberto Eco: Advice to the Young from Louisiana Channel on Vimeo.

Best-selling Italian novelist Umberto Eco here advises aspiring writers not to take themselves too seriously, but to go step by step and remember that: “You’re 10 per cent inspiration and 90 per cent perspiration.”

If you start off thinking that you’re a true genius and that you’ll be receiving the Nobel Prize any moment, you have a problem: “That kills every literary career.”

Umberto Eco was interviewed in his apartment in Milan by Tonny Vorm in May 2015.
