Umberto Eco was a supremely knowledgeable and magnificent writer. His Foucault's Pendulum was maddeningly chaotic and confusing but ends with profound clarity. As an Agatha Christie fan, his The Name of the Rose was rich and glorious. It must have been quite an experience for Taleb to have met the great man.
