Paperback edition, signed by NT di G

Author: Norman Thomas di Giovanni

 

A memoir and essays on Borges's work, The Lesson of the Master draws on the author's unique relationship with Borges as friend, translator, and collaborator. The result is an essential illumination of one of the great masters of twentieth-century literature. The late Malcolm Williamson once wrote in the Independent that 'Even if Norman Thomas di Giovanni has added not one cubit to Borges's stature (who could?), no praise is enough for his bringing the great lion to the English-speaking world with such clarity and so authentic a love for his subject.'

Author: 14 Argentine Writers

Edited by Norman Thomas di Giovanni

Translated by Norman Thomas di Giovanni & Susan Ashe

 

A collection of fourteen short stories by leading Argentine authors, many of them translated here into English for the first time. 'The short narrative', the editor writes in his introduction, 'has long been the favoured genre of Argentine writers rather than the novel to depict the world and their relation to it.' The translators worked closely with all of the contributors. One critic called this an 'indispensable and vividly translated anthology'. Cosmopolitan called it 'A dazzling collection ... a must for the lovers of Latin American works.'

Matchless translations of another eighteen exciting Argentine writers, many of whose stories at the time of publication had not yet appeared in their original language. The tales combine the realistic and the fantastic, with stories from Buenos Aires and from the little-known interior of the country. The themes are both thoughtful and humorous, earthy and speculative.
