"A new-millenium version of Cliffs Notes...Breezy, chatty, and to the point. Perfect for those hungry for literature." (ForeWord)
"Promise[s] to get readers up to speed...in 100 pages or so with no dumbing down." (New York Times)
I learned of Borges by a reference in Stephen Mitchell's translation of the Bhagavad Gita; I am fascinated by his manipulation of time and reality. I enjoyed this book.
