Born in Buenos Aires in 1899, Jorge Luis Borges has become an Argentinian icon alongside Che Guevara, Evita Peron and Maradona. Destined to be a writer and, it seems, destined to become blind, his formative years were spent reading in his father's library, with occasional myopic glimpses of a rougher life in the surrounding streets. All his early life Borges knew he would become blind, hated his body and compensated by reading omnivorously. After a nearly fatal accident, he turned to what would make him famous, his 'fictions' - short stories that are also essays and literary hoaxes. Jason Wilson explores the complex relationships between the life lived and the written work, uncovering the earlier period of Borges's life, much neglected by biographers, as being fundamental to the development of his writing. Street and cafe life, close literary friendships, love crushes, reading, polemics, and of course writing, form the substance of these earlier years, in strong contrast to the later Borges who gradually retreated inwards, yet always maintained his irreverent outlook. Jason Wilson reads the stories of his life back into the work, uncovering the essentials of his biography to better illuminate his fictions. Before his blindness, an adventurer who fell in and out of love, once blind Borges became dependent upon his mother and women friends and more importantly, ceased to write radical work. Describing a poet whose life is subtly recreated through his work, but never in confessional ways, Wilson reveals the more youthful, vibrant Borges so often obscured by the blind, more conservative figure of world acclaim.
