Review:

"It's a book I look forward to as research, but even more as a kid-at-heart fan of the unnatural, the impossible, the feared" (Andrew Pyper)

"He is one of the giants of twentieth-century literature who has vastly enriched the textures of vocabulary of our fantasies and speculation. Only Borges could dream the world with such intellectual rigour" ( Ian McEwan)

"Borges is a genius of the first order" (Martin Amis)

"One of Borges's great creations... The Book of Imaginary Beings tosses stone after stone into the subterranean caverns of the reader's mind. It takes us along passageways and turns corners to reveal strange shapes and images, some of which may precede and outlast anything conceived by man" ( Guardian)

"Jorge Luis Borges, the century's most flagrant, ingenious and industrious compiler of manuscripts that fall short of reality" ( New York Times)

Book Description:

The incomparable imagination of Jorge Luis Borges runs wild in this kaleidoscopic miscellany of fantastical creatures.
