Dice Jorge Luis Borges sobre La invención de Morel: "He discutido con el autor los pormenores de su trama, la he releído; no me parece una imprecisión o una hipérbole calificarla de perfecta".

La invención de Morel tiene muchas facetas: es una novela fantástica, una novela de aventuras y también una reflexión sobre las fronteras de la realidad, sobre el amor, y sobre la inmortalidad.

El narrador, un fugitivo acosado por la justicia, llega en un bote de remos a una isla desierta sobre la que se alzan algunas construcciones abandonadas. Pero un día, advierte que no está solo. En la isla han aparecido otros seres humanos. Se oyen voces, canciones, aparecen y desaparecen personas. El los observa, los espía, sigue sus pasos, procura sorprender sus conversaciones. Y de aquí arranca el misterio, la alternancia entre alucinación y realidad, que le lleva a enamorarse de una mujer cuya existencia es dudosa. Cuando por fin logre descifrar el enigma, ideará también la forma de permanecer para siempre junto a su amada.

Este libro tiene el derecho de compararse con las historias más logradas de Edgar Allan Poe. Su trama ingeniosa, el desarrollo sabiamente dosificado por el autor y, sobre todo, la admirable originalidad de la idea en torno a la cual gira la acción, han convertido a La invención de Morel en una obra maestra indiscutible de la literatura fantástica argentina.
