Sinopsis:

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism

It will come as a surprise to some readers that the greater part of Jorge Luis Borges's extraordinary writing was not in the genres of fiction or poetry, but in the various forms of non-fiction prose. His thousands of pages of essays, reviews, prologues, lectures, and notes on politics and culture though revered in Latin America and Europe as among his finest work have scarcely been translated into English.

Críticas:

"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."
--Richard Bernstein, 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."
--Andrew Roe, San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle

"Sheer delight ... witty and elaborate, in turn intimate and magisterial ... his is the literature of eternity."
--Peter Ackroyd, The (London) Times

"A cornucopia of wit, wisdom and critical insights."
--George Steiner, Times Literary Supplement
