"The 'non' of 'non-fictions' can be a discouraging prefix preparing us for sober instruction rather than the transport of aesthetic pleasure. Not so with Borges. Many of these pieces are as much products of the creative imagination as the better-known 'fictions.' What's more, they help us to understand the fictions better."Borges, Jorge Luis is the author of 'Selected Non-Fictions', published 2000 under ISBN 9780140290110 and ISBN 0140290117.
