In these subtly ingenious stories Jorge Luis Borges turns conventional ideas inside out, returning again and again to favourite themes: dreams, labyrinths, mirrors, infinite libraries, transparent tigers, the vagaries of chance and the elusive nature of identity. Now, all of Borges's dazzling fictions have been freshly translated by Andrew Hurley and gathered into a single volume, from his 1935 debut A Universal History of Iniquity to Shakespeare's Memory, his final and never before translated work from the 1980s.
'The most important thing to happen to imaginative writing in the Spanish language in modern times... one of the most memorable artists of our age.'
