More Description

The complete fiction of Jorge Luis Borges, whom Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa calls "the most important Spanish-language writer since Cervantes"
A "New York Times "Notable BookThe International Bestseller
For the first time in English, all of the best Latin American writer Jorge Luis Borges's dazzling fictions are collected in a single volume in brilliant new translations by Andrew Hurley. From his 1935 debut with "The Universal History of Iniquity "through his immensely influential collections "Ficciones "and "The Aleph, "the enigmatic prose poems of "The Maker, "up to his final work in the 1980s, "Shakespeare's Memory," these enigmatic, elaborate, imaginative inventions display Borges's talent for turning fiction on its head by playing with form and genre and toying with language.
For some fifty years, in intriguing and ingenious fictions that reimagined the very form of the short story, Borges returned again and again to his celebrated themes: dreams, duels, labyrinths, mirrors, infinite libraries, the manipulations of chance, gauchos, knife fighters, tigers, and the elusive nature of identity itself. Playfully experimenting with ostensibly subliterary genres, Borges took the detective story and turned it into metaphysics; he took fantasy writing and made it, with its questioning and reinventing of everyday reality, central to the craft of fiction; he took the literary essay and put it to use reviewing wholly imaginary books.
Commemorating the 100th anniversary of his birth, this edition at last brings together all of Borges's magical short stories. "Collected Fictions "is the definitive one-volume compendium for all those who have long loved Borges, and a superb introduction to the Argentine master's work for those who have yet to discover him.
