Borges at Eighty

(2013)
A non fiction book by

 
 
A collection of interviews now available from New Directions for the first time

The words of a genius: Borges at Eighty transcends our expectations of ordinary conversation. In these interviews with Barnstone, Dick Cavett, and Alastair Reid, Borges touches on favorite writers (Whitman, Poe, Emerson) and familiar themes - labyrinths, mystic experiences, and death - and always with great, throw-away humor. For example, discussing nightmares, he concludes,"When I wake up, I wake to something worse. It's the astonishment of being myself."
