BRODIE'SREPORT
TRANSLATED

IN COLLABORATION WITH THE AUTHOR
 
New
stories by a modern masterof world literature
JORGE
LUIS BORGES
DOCTOR
BRODIE'S REPORT
Translated
by Norman Thomas di Giovanniin collaboration with the author
When
blindness overtook him in the earlyfifties,
Jorge
Luis
Borges
believed that his
career
as a writer of short stories was at an
end.
Yet there were
still
stories to be
told
and
the impulse to
tell
them was too strongto resist. The result—after a hiatus of
seven-
teen
years—is the eleven masterful storiesin
Doctor Brodie's Report.
A number ofthem are clearly destined to become
classics.
V.
S. Pritchett has written that
Borges
has"the art of enhancing the effects of the un
bearable,
the sinister, and the ineluctable."
Indeed,
these stories, deceptively plain inthe telling, bear a unique magic.
In
the
Preface
to
Doctor Brodie's Report,
Borges
writes: "I
have
done my best—Idon't know with what successto writestraightforward stories. I do not dare to
state
that they are simple; there isn't any
where
on earth a single page or single wordthat is, since
each
thing
implies the uni
verse,
whose most obvious
trait
is complexity My stories, like those of the
Thousandand One Nights, try
to be entertaining ormoving but not persuasive. ... The art of
writing
is mysterious; the opinions we hold
are
ephemeral. . . ."All those who love a story
told
by a
mas-
ter of the art
have
reason to rejoice at this
new
collection of
Borges
tales, includingeight which
have
never before appeared inbook form.
