" Fantastical tales of mazes, puzzles, lost labyrinths and bookish mysteries, from the unique imagination of a literary magician. "

I have a garden near my house where I usually take my dogs for a walk. In the corner of the garden there is a small monument in homage to the argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges.
For a long time, I passed this monument and thought: " I should read something of this writer, as I do not know anything about him." So I picked up a very small book with a few of his short stories and they were great. Very weird, mysterious and very easy to read and end them with a "Wow, I did not see this one coming".
It seems I have a small monument to thank for allowing me to discover this great writer.

Book has arrived from its long trip all the way from Portugal to Australia. Thank you for sending.

It’s my first time reading this author and because it’s a small book I should finish it soon.

I’m not sure what to say about this book. It was too short for me to say that I don’t like it and yet I feel that I have missed something and so I cannot really say that I like it.

Is there a message here somewhere that I have been unable to understand?

Love those hitchhikers! No I haven't read it yet, and it looks very interesting.
Thanks very much.

Five short (one of them very short) stories. Rather weird, but also fascinating and compelling. His matter of fact style adds to the tension and mystery within the stories.
