Borges: A Reader: The Selected Works of Jorge Luis Borges.
by Borges, Jorge Luis.
A Near Fine copy with a previous owner's name on the flyleaf in a Near Fine, un clipped dust jacket. Jorge Luis Borgesí terse, mind-expanding stories reshaped modern fiction. He was one of the first authors to mix high culture with low, merging such popular genres as science fiction and the detective story with heady philosophical discourses on authorship, reality and existence. His tone of ironic detachment influenced generations of Latin American authors. The BBC argued that Borges was the most important writer of the 20th century. The 118 pieces in this selection of Borges' writings represent the full range of this master of the fantastic and the realistic as found in his fiction, his essays and his poems. This is the essential one-volume Borges.
