About the Author

Borges was born in Buenos Aires in 1899. A poet, critic and short story writer, he received numerous awards for his work including the 1961 International Publisher's Prize (shared with Samuel Beckett). He died in 1986. He has a reasonable claim, with Kafka and Joyce, to be the most influential writer of the 20th Century.

Reviews

This volume combines 23 short stories, ten essays, and nine parables--a wonderful variety of Borges's writings. It also sports a new intro by sf star William Gibson and a chronology of Borges's life. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"Great because of their wonderful intelligence."
Borges is arguably the great bridge between modernism and post-modernism in world literature.--David Foster Wallace
Borges anticipated postmodernism (deconstruction and so on) and picked up credit as founding father of Latin American magical realism.--Colin Waters
