Coup de coeur
Coup de coeur (Fiction), by Eva
Ficciones is a collection of short stories by postmodernist Argentinian author Jorge Luis Borges. It contains snippets, stories, and thought experiments highlighting the author's gift for metaphysical commentary and his impressive command of an expansive catalogue of world literature, philosophy and esoterism. The Ficciones' literary meanderings in and out of cyclical temporalities, infinite libraries, distant lands and metatextual realities make it a rich compendium perfect for summertime (and year-long) escape. The vignettes are absorbing and cerebral, dream-like, but self-contained and short enough to digest as one goes about one's summer activities.
FICTIONS is perhaps the single most mysterious and extraordinary collection of short stories written this century. Influenced by writers as disparate as Lewis Carroll, Stevenson and Cervantes, Borges is nethertheless a complete original who can turn dry logical puzzles in to enchanting fables. The Pieces in this volume represent his most accomplished work.
