  3. The most popular anthology of Jorge Luis Borges’s short stories, Fictions is a wildly original and influential collection of fantastic tales, translated from the Spanish with an afterword by Andrew Hurley in Penguin Modern Classics. Jorge Luis Borges’s Fictions introduced an entirely new voice into world literature. It is here that we find the astonishing accounts of ‘Funes the Memorious’, the man who can forget nothing; ‘Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote’, who recreates Miguel de Cervantes’s epic word-for-word; a society run on the basis of an all-encompassing game of chance in ‘The Lottery in Babylon’; the mysterious world of ‘Tloen, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius’ which seems to be supplanting our own ; and the ‘Library of Babel’, which contains every possible book in the whole universe. Here too are the philosophical detective stories and the haunting tales of Irish revolutionaries, gaucho knife fights and dreams within dreams which proved so influential (and yet impossible to imitate). This collection was eventually to bring Borges international fame; over fifty years later, it remains endlessly intriguing. Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. A poet, critic and short story writer, he received numerous awards for his work including the 1961 International Publisher’s Prize (shared with Samuel Beckett). He has a reasonable claim, along with Kafka and Joyce, to be one of the most influential writers of the 20th century. If you enjoyed Fictions, you might like Italo Calvino’s The Complete Cosmicomics, also available in Penguin Modern Classics. ’Hurley’s efforts at retranslating Borges are not anything but heroic. His visions are clear, elegant, crystalline’Ilan Savans, The Times Literary Supplement ’One of the most memorable artists of our age’Mario Vargas Llosa

  17. 1502 and Renaissance Italy is in turmoil. Backed by the money and wily power of his ageing father Pope Alexander VI, Cesare Borgia is soaring like a military comet, carving out a state for the Borgia dynasty. From Florence, a young diplomat, one Niccolo Machiavelli, is sent to shadow him to keep track of the danger. While many tremble in the presence of this brilliant unscrupulous man, Machiavelli is entranced and the relationship he forges with Cesare allows him – and us – to witness history in the making. Meanwhile, the Pope’s beloved daughter Lucrezia is on her way to a third dynastic marriage in the state of Ferrara, where if she is to survive she must fast produce an heir for the rival Este family. Cesare holds his sister dear, but striving always for conquest rather than conciliation, he pays little mind to her precarious position. As the Borgia enemies gather, in Rome, the pope grows older and ever more cantankerous.Drawing us in with her dynamic prose and intimate knowledge of one of the most fascinating periods in Italian history, Sarah Dunant dramatises the rise of one of history’s most fascinating characters, Niccolo Machiavelli, during the formative years of his life. In the Name of the Family breathes new life into the daring and corruption of a family that history will never forget. This is a moment from which no one will emerges unscathed.
