If you’ve yet to read Borges, get it together. This collection is the best way to get started.  A wonderful sampling of his strange and delightful, haunting fictions and his meandering but pointed essays, I cannot recommend highly enough picking up this volume from one of the greatest writers in both the great Argentine and great Modernist traditions.

— From Sam


This new edition ofLabyrinths, 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 Andre 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.
