The Library of Babel, Jorge Luis Borges
Neither sand nor this book has a beginning or an end
Magical books, infinite libraries, parallel worlds, mazes, labyrinths and philosophical paradoxes haunt these spellbinding tales by one of the most uniquely inventive short story writers of the twentieth century.
This collection brings together many of Borges’s greatest and most beloved stories, including 'The Garden of Forking Paths', 'The Book of Sand' and 'Shakespeare's Memory'.
Jorge Luis Borges was born in Buenos Aires in 1899 and educated in Europe. One of the most widely acclaimed writers of our times, he published many collections of poems, essays and short stories, before his death in Geneva in June 1986.
