Ficciones is a collection of some of Jorge Louis Borges most compelling, philosophical (fictional) fantasies. The mind-expanding Library of Babble and the Garden of Forking Paths are among the outstanding short stories contained in the book.

Borges’s gift is to take complex concepts about subjects as obtuse as quantum physics, multiple futures, time travel, and metaphysical philosophy, and, through the disguise of fantastical fictional stories, demystify their secrets for his readers.

Ficciones is a window into a truly exceptional, imaginative, well-read mind (Borges was once known as “the man who had read all the books“, a fact that captures my imagination and wins my admiration), and is sure to expand your mind to a new way of looking at the world.
