Edwin Williamson is the King Alfonso XIII Professor of Spanish at Oxford University and a fellow of Exeter College. Williamson's life of Borges shows him to have dreamt copiously through his long existence. His books include The Penguin History of Latin America. He was a wreckless public speaker who loved to drop bombs in interviews and was unafraid to court controversy. He started his literary life as an ensign of the avant-garde and a bolshevik sympathiser. He morphed into a cultural nationalist, an admirer of the cut-throats of the barriadas, the knife-men of the Pampas and of old-fashioned milongas and tangos (he even wrote a few).

Williamson's "Borges: A Life" renders James Woodall's identically titled 1996 biography obsolete.

Thanks to Williamson's association with Maria Kodama, Borges' longtime companion - whom he married shortly before his death and who became sole executor of his estate - we at last have a definitive biography of Borges. Williamson's "Borges: A Life" renders James Woodall's identically titled 1996 biography obsolete. On paper, it doesn't sound like much of a life
