Praise

“Dizzying in scope and dazzling in execution … Should throw even the most dedicated Borges fan for a loop.” The New Yorker
 
“Intelligently selected and magically translated … Borges’s uniqueness in 20th-century letters is rooted in an almost monstrous combination: encyclopedic knowledge, razorlike critical judgment and a ravishing appreciation for the magical and pagan dimension in every situation.”
The New York Times
 
“A remarkable achievement, offering the general reader and Borges aficianados alike a rapturous glimpse into one of literature’s most fertile and original minds.” —San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle
 
“Sheer delight … witty and elaborate, in turn intimate and magisterial … his is the literature of eternity.”
The Times (London)
 
“A cornucopia of wit, wisdom and critical insights.” Times Literary Supplement
