Publisher's summary

Jorge Luis Borges has been called the greatest Spanish-language writer of our century. A selection of Borges' dazzling fictions are gathered in this audiobook, brilliantly translated by Andrew Hurley. These enigmatic, elaborate, imaginative inventions display Borges' talent for turning fiction on its head by playing with form and genre and toying with language. Together these incomparable works comprise the perfect compendium for all those who have long loved Borges, and a superb introduction to the master's work for those who have yet to discover this singular genius.

Selections include: "Borges and I", "The Garden of Forking Paths", "Man on Pink Corner", "The Library of Babel", "Death and the Compass", "The Lottery in Babylon", "The Maker", "The Zahir", "The Encounter", "The Circular Ruins", "Shakespeare's Memory", "August 25, 1983", "The Immortal", "Parable of Cervantes and the Quixote", "The Story from Rosendo Juarez", "The Aleph", and "Dreamtigers".

Please note: This audio edition includes selections from the paperback edition. The stories included are unabridged.

Critic reviews

“The major work of probably the most influential Latin American writer of the century." (The Washington Post Book World)

“An unparalleled treasury of marvels.... Along with a tiny cohort of peers, and seers (Kafka and Joyce come to mind), Borges is more than a stunning storyteller and a brilliant stylist; he’s a mirror who reflects the spirit of his time." (Chicago Tribune)

“Borges is the most important Spanish-language writer since Cervantes.... To have denied him the Nobel Prize is as bad as the case of Joyce, Proust, and Kafka.” (Mario Vargas Llosa)
