Doctor Brodie's Report

Product description

From dust jacket: When blindness overtook him in the early fifties, Jorge Luis Borges believed that his career as a writer of short stories was at an end. Yet there were still stories to be told and the impulse to tell them was too strong to resits. The result - after a hiatus of seventeen years - is the eleven masterful stories in Doctor Brodie's Report.... All those who love a story told by a master of the art have reason to rejoice at this new collection of Borges tales, including eight which have never before appeared in book form.

The Gospel According to Mark
The Unworthy Friend
The Duel
The End of the Duel
