This is a great book for those that are very informed of literature. This man goes above and beyond your average thinker when it comes to literature and demands a great deal of respect and attentiveness to understand what he speaks of. Through the interviews, one peers through the window of a great literary mind, however, ones appreciation for this book grows if the reader is familiar with the works of Emerson, Chaucer, de Quincey, and Kipling, as these were major influences that he loved to discuss, analyze and above all else enjoyed. I am a major fan of Mr. Borges so I feel that this review is somewhat biased.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A highly pleasurable and interesting set of interviews with Borges
These interviews are interesting and insightful give a real feeling of dialogue . The interviewer shows great understanding and sympathy of Borges. And Borges is Borges here with all that means in wisdom, love of literature, great poetic irony and a truthfulness all his own.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
