Penguin Putnam

Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism
It will come as a surprise to some readers that the greater part of Jorge Luis Borges's extraordinary writing was not in the genres of fiction or poetry, but in the various forms of non-fiction prose. His thousands of pages of essays, reviews, prologues, lectures, and notes on politics and culture—though revered in Latin America and Europe as among his finest work—have scarcely been translated into English.

Baker & Taylor
The non-fiction work of the great Latin American poet and writer is collected here with essays, reviews, lectures, and political commentary on everything from Ellery Queen to the Kabbalah. Reprint.

A book that is comprised of short pieces, none of which ever bore the reader. I read it sequentially, but there would be no loss if one dipped into it here and there.
