The classic by Latin America's finest writer of the twentieth century—a true literary sensation—with an introduction by cyber-author William Gibson.
This new edition of Labyrinths, the classic representative selection of Borges' writing edited by Donald A. Yates and James E. Irby (in translations by themselves and others), includes the text of the original edition (as augmented in 1964) as well as Irby's biographical and critical essay, a poignant tribute by André Maurois, and a chronology of the author's life. Borges enthusiast William Gibson has contributed a new introduction bringing Borges' influence and importance into the twenty-first century.
“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
