One day his friend and mentor, Alastair Reid, asked Jay if he could play host for a 'visiting Latin American writer' while he attended to business in London. He agreed--and that 'writer' turned out to be the blind and aged and eccentric master of literary compression and metaphysics, Jorge Luis Borges. About whom Jay Parini knew precisely nothing. What ensued was a seriocomic romp across the Scottish landscape that Borges insisted he must 'see,' all the while declaiming and reciting from the literary encyclopedia that was his head, and Jay Parini's eventual reckoning with his vocation and personal fate."--Publisher's website.
