9781433218163: Borges in 90 Minutes (Great Writers in 90 Minutes)

Building on his enormously successful series of Philosophers in 90 Minutes, Paul Strathern now applies his witty and incisive prose to brief biographical studies of the world's great writers. He brings their lives and ideas to life in entertaining and accessible fashion. Far from being a novelty, each book is a highly refined appraisal of the writer and his work, authoritative and clearly presented.

Applause for Paul Strathern's Philosophers in 90 Minutes series:

"Each of these little books is witty and dramatic and creates a sense of time, place, and character....I cannot think of a better way to introduce oneself and one's friends to Western civilization."?Katherine A. Powers, Boston Globe

"Well-written, clear and informed, they have a breezy wit about them....I find them hard to stop reading."?Richard Bernstein, New York Times

"Witty, illuminating, and blessedly concise."?Jim Holt, Wall Street Journal
