Publication Timeline. Though this may sound like a rather improbable film plot, it is the story of Jorge Luis Borges, a story investigated in detail by Borges' close friend Emir Monegal. Professor Monegal, a Borges confidant for more than 30 years, has been able, as no one else possibly could, to unearth the facts from this legend that Borges has so deftly constructed around himself.
The result is a narrative as intriguing as one of Borges' own stories of detection. Monegal traces Borges' development as a writer from its beginnings in the child called Georgie who lived in a rundown neighborhood on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, learning to read English before he could read Spanish, to the winner of the most prestigious international literary prizes.
He skillfully links Borges' personal history with his literary production, providing a fascinating account of the unfolding and eventual fruition of a creative genius.
