Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Divertissement"

    Only if you are looking for some heady philosophical writing by a remarkable Spanish writer and poet. Worth the $1.95 just for 20 min. of listening to the language used so creatively and beautifully (read by the ever fabtastick Guidall). A Zahir is an object or person that has the ability to create obsession in the person who sees it. In this case, a coin that sends the storyteller tripping into train of thought ramblings, obsessive dreams, and madness. I've been wanting to read Borges and have bought several of the short stories offered by Audio for those in-between-book moments, and detox reads. Maybe one day I'll understand their weighty existential meaning.
