About this title


Edwin Williamson's major new biography is the first in any language to encompass the entire span of Jorge Luis Borges's life and work. Drawing upon previously unknown or unavailable sources, it brings out the human side of Borges: his roots in Argentina, the evolution of his political ideas, his relations with family and friends; the conflicts, desires, and obsessions that drove the man and shaped his work. Williamson's definitive biography finally unlocks the mysteries that still surround hte life of Borges, resulting in a compelling and poignant portrait that will radically transform established views of this modern master.
