Product Description:

The art of writing is mysterious; the opinions we hold are ephemeral. In these eleven short stories the quality of his inspiration is unmistakable. With their deceptively simple, almost laconic style, they achieve a magical impression that is unrivalled in modern writing.

Review:

[Borges] renovated the language of fiction and thus opened the way to a remarkable generation of Spanish-American novelists. (J.M. Coetzee, "The New York Review of Books") Hurley's efforts at retranslating Borges are not anything but heroic. His versions are clear, elegant, crystalline. ("The Times Literary Supplement")
