Selected Non-Fictions

Jorge Luis Borges

This unique volume presents a Borges almost entirely unknown to American readers: his extraordinary non-fiction prose. Borges’ unlimited curiosity and almost superhuman erudition become, in his essays, reviews, lectures, and political and cultural notes, a vortex for seemingly the entire universe: Dante and Ellery Queen; Shakespeare and the Kabbalah; the history of angels and the history of the tango; the Buddha, Bette Davis, and the Dionne Quints.
