With Borges
By: Manguel, Alberto

Language: English


Memoirs by Alberto Manguel, and a winner of the 2003 Prix du livre en Poitou-Charentes.

In 1964, in Buenos Aires, a blind writer in his sixties approached a sixteen-year-old bookstore clerk and asked if he would be interested in a part-time job reading aloud. The writer was Jorge Luis Borges, one of the world's finest literary minds; the boy was Alberto Manguel, who was later to become an internationally acclaimed author and bibliophile.
