bookshelves: fiction, spain-and-latin-america
Recommended for: people looking to get into Borges
Read in August, 2007

This is a little less heavy on the math stuff than say, The Aleph, and all in all it's a good mix of poetry and prose works. The translation was good, personally I prefer Ficciones but I think that might be because it was the first Borges I read. For everyone who had to read The Library of Babel in some english class and got a headache from it, this would be a good introduction to some of Borges' other stuff. The pieces are short and easily digestible, and altogether wonderful.
