Reviews

The essays are always lucid and probing, and always slightly skewed, vaguely unsettling, again dislocating your sense of reality and truth. Ultimately it is this that always makes me return to Borges, this ability to make the world seem different ...-- "BBC"
Borges is arguably the great bridge between modernism and post-modernism in world literature.--David Foster Wallace "The New York Times"
Borges anticipated postmodernism (deconstruction and so on) and picked up credit as founding father of Latin American magical realism.--Colin Waters "The Washington Times"
