Publisher Description

Days before his death, Jorge Luis Borges gave an intimate interview to his friend, the Argentine journalist Gloria Lopez Lecube. That interview is translated for the first time here, giving English-language readers a new insight into his life and thoughts about his work and country at the end of his life. Accompanying this final interview are a selection of the fascinating interviews he gave throughout his career. Together, this thought-provoking collection provides a fresh look at one of the most celebrated cultural figures of the past century.

Review

"Borges is arguably the great bridge between modernism and post-modernism in world literature." --David Foster Wallace, The New York Times "Borges is the most important Spanish-language writer since Cervantes. . . . To have denied him the Nobel Prize is as bad as the case of Joyce, Proust, and Kafka." --Mario Vargas Llosa

"Without Borges the modern Latin American novel simply would not exist." --Carlos Fuentes

"[Borges] has lifted fiction away from the flat earth where most of our novels and short stories still take place." --John Updike

"[Borges] engages the heart as well as the intelligence; his genius strikes, undismayed as Theseus, through the labyrinths of our life and time to the accomplishment of new, inspiring and stunningly beautiful work." --John Barth
