  2. 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

A Times Best Historical Fiction Book of the Year A Cosmopolitan Best Book of the Year A History Today Book of the Year’Dunant has made completely her own the story of the Italy’s most infamous ruling family . . . in a way that we can see, hear and smell’ Mark Lawson, Guardian’A stunning tale of power and family . . . In Dunant’s telling of the Borgia story, Lucrezia is not the sluttish power-crazed poisoner of legend . . . her glorious prose makes her version irresistible’ Antonia Senior, The Times’Stuffed with violence, danger and passion’ Daily Mail Conjuring up the past in all its complexity, horror and pleasures, In The Name of the Family confirms Sarah Dunant’s place as the leading novelist of the Renaissance and one of the most acclaimed historical fiction writers of our age.In the Name of the Family - as Blood and Beauty did before – holds up a mirror to a turbulent moment of history, sweeping aside the myths to bring alive the real Borgia family; complicated, brutal, passionate and glorious. Here is a thrilling exploration of the House of Borgia’s doomed years, in the company of a young diplomat named Niccolo Machiavelli. It is 1502 and Rodrigo Borgia, a self-confessed womaniser and master of political corruption is now on the Papal throne as Alexander VI. His daughter Lucrezia, aged twenty-two, already thrice married and a pawn in her father’s plans, is discovering her own power. And then there is Cesare Borgia: brilliant, ruthless and increasingly unstable; it is his relationship with the diplomat Machiavelli which offers a master class on the dark arts of power and politics. What Machiavelli learns will go on to inform his great work of modern politics, The Prince.But while the pope rails against old age and his son’s increasing maverick behavior it is Lucrezia who will become the Borgia survivor: taking on her enemies and creating her own place in history.
