Description
 
The acclaimed translation of Borgess valedictory stories, in its first stand-alone edition Jorge Luis Borges has been called the greatest Spanish-language writer of the twentieth century. Now Borgess remarkable last major story collection, "The Book of Sand," is paired with a handful of writings from the very end of his life. Brilliantly translated, these stories combine a direct and at times almost colloquial style coupled with Borgess signature fantastic inventiveness. Containing such marvelous tales as The Congress, Undr, The Mirror and the Mask, and The Rose of Paracelsus, this edition showcases Borgess depth of vision and superb image-conjuring power.
