Pearls series

His is the literature of eternity.

—Peter Ackroyd, The London Times

A pocket-sized Pearl edition of some of Borges’ best fictions and essays.

Everything and Nothing

Fiction by Jorge Luis Borges

Translated from the Spanish by Donald Yates

Everything and Nothing collects the best of Borges’ highly influential work — written in the 1930s and ‘40s — that foresaw the internet (“Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius”), quantum mechanics (“The Garden of Forking Paths”), and cloning (“Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote”). David Foster Wallace described Borges as “scalp-crinkling… Borges’ work is designed primarily as metaphysical arguments… to transcend individual consciousness.”

Jorge Luis Borges

Twentieth-century Argentine author

His is the literature of eternity.

—Peter Ackroyd, The London Times

The selections in Everything and Nothing handle ideas and belief systems like found objects to be rearranged into amusing new combinations that, like all great art, compel us to re-see, re-experience, and re-think.
