From the publisher

In Buenos Aires, 1964, a blind writer in his sixties approaches a sixteen-year-old bookstore clerk and asking if he would be interested in a part-time job reading aloud. The writer was Jorge Luis Borges, one of the world's finest literary minds; the boy was Alberto Manguel, who was later to become an internationally acclaimed author and editor and bibliophile. The young Manguel spent several years reading aloud and transcribing for the enigmatic Borges. Here he recalls this time with integrity and warmth, offering us an intimate and moving portrait of one of the great literary luminaries.
