If I had a copy, I’d begin re-reading Other Inquisitions today. I enjoyed reading a bit of the work of Jorge Luis Borges in the long-ago past, but it’s been so long that I remember very little of it. I may not have finished Other Inquisitions. And I’m sure I read only bits and pieces of The Book of Imaginary Beings. Alas, I don’t think I have a copy of either book. If I do, I’ll pick it up and read a little today.
UPDATE: I have Other Inquisitions! Judging from my handwriting (I wrote my name on the cover and inside), I got the book either in high school or the first years of college.
