Description

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."
