            Hier geht es um groteske Geschichten aus einer nicht alltglichen Arbeitswelt, um sonderbare Begegnungen mit Politikern der vergangenen ra, und um auergewhnliche Erlebnisse aus dem Armeealltag. Schmunzelnd fokussiert der Autor in seinen 13 Anekdoten persnliche Erlebnisse aus der u...ntergegangenen DDR. Wer traute sich sich ber Ulbrichts Kapriolen zu lachen? In welcher Situation waren Breschnews Grbchen am liebenswertesten? Wo gelang dem Autor ein unvergesslicher Auftritt vor den aufgereihten Vertretern der Arbeiterklasse? Wie war es mglich beim allmorgendlichen Apel ber die Lautsprecheranlage eines NVA Objektes Musik eines Feindsenders erklingen zu lassen? Wie facettenreich ein Urlaubsaufenthalt in der Nische des Gulaschkommunismus ablaufen konnte, und manch andere kuriose Begebenheiten am Rande des Mglichen, kann der Leser in diesen Geschichten erfahren.

            The seventeen pieces in Ficciones demonstrate the gargantuan powers of imagination, intelligence, and style of one of the greatest writers of this or any other century. Borges sends us on a journey into a compelling, bizarre, and profoundly resonant realm; we enter the fearful sp...here of Pascal's abyss, the surreal and literal labyrinth of books, and the iconography of eternal return. More playful and approachable than the fictions themselves are Borges's Prologues, brief elucidations that offer the uninitiated a passageway into the whirlwind of Borges's genius and mirror the precision and potency of his intellect and inventiveness, his piercing irony, his skepticism, and his obsession with fantasy. For to enter the worlds in Ficciones is to enter the mind of Jorge Luis Borges, wherein lie Heaven, Hell, and everything in between.
