Title Details

A selection from The Collected Fictions of Jorge Luis Borges.

Borges has been called the greatest Spanish-language writer of our century. From his 1935 debut with The Universal History of Iniquity, through his immensely influential collections Ficciones and The Aleph, these enigmatic, elaborate, imaginative inventions display Borges' talent for turning fiction on its head by playing with form and genre and toying with language.
