Notes: A compelling group, from the collection of Borges's translator, collaborator, and friend Norman Thomas di Giovanni, showing the Master's developing eminence in the Anglophone literary world – effected in part through the sort of public appearances documented here, and indeed in part through the growing body of translation in respect of which his conjunction with Di Giovanni played a decisive role.
