Happy Birthday, Jorge Luis Borges!


Argentinean author Jorge Luis Borges was born 112 years ago today, and Google celebrates his birthday with this great doodle on its home page.

 The Guardian features an article about Borges, calling him the “master of magic realism.”

The Garden of Jorge Borges and The Garden of Forking Paths are two websites devoted to Borges – both take their name from Borges’ first book, The Garden of Forking Paths.

    I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this information together.

    I once again find myself spending a lot of time both reading and
    posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
