New Borges in May from New Directions

New Directions is going to publish a new book of Borges. It is unclear weather it has new material in English or is just a different approach at compiling his work.

Everything and Nothing collects Borges’ highly influential work – written in the 1930s and ’40s – that forsaw the internet, quantum mechanics, and cloning. In one essay, he discusses the relationship between blindness and poetry. As Roberto Bolaño succinctly said: “I could live under a table reading Borges.”
