A collection of essays on Jorge Luis Borges by his long-time friend and collaborator.
Jorge Luis Borges - Argentine poet, essayist, and short-story writer - is widely considered one of the giants of 20th-century world literature.
Norman Thomas di Giovanni worked alongside Borges for a number of years creating English translations of his work, the only translations personally overseen by Borges himself. In The Lesson of the Master, a memoir and essays, he writes about his time with Borges but also offers us a unique insight on the man and his work.
It is an indispensable volume for Borges readers and his growing legion of students and scholars.
Born in Newton, Massachusetts in 1933, di Giovanni now lives in Lymington on the south coast of England. He still works on translations and continues to fight for the right to make his work with Borges available once more.
