LABERYNTHS: SELECTED STORIES AND OTHER WRITINGS
Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was a literary spellbinder whose gripping tales of magic, mystery and murder are shot through with deep philosophical paradoxes. This collection brings together many of his stories, including the celebrated 'Library of Babel', 'Garden of Forking Paths', 'Funes the Memorious' and 'Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote'. In later life, dogged by increasing blindness, Borges used essays and brief tantalizing parables to explore the enigmas of time, identity and imagination. Playful and disturbing, scholarly and seductive, his is a haunting and utterly distinctive voice.
