"Commemorating the hundredth anniversary of his birth, this centenary edition at last brings together all of Borges' magical stories, and all of them newly rendered into English in superb translation by Andrew Hurley. Collected Fictions is the perfect one-volume compendium for all those who have long loved Borges, and the perfect introduction to the mater's work for all those who have yet to discover him." --cover p. 2
