A Universal History of Infamy - Jorge Luis Borges

Original title: Historia universal de la infamia, 1935, short non-fictional stories and literary forgeries. The edition of 1958 adds a prologue and several more literary forgeries.

Few readers will want, or be able, to resist this modern bestiary. Borges' cunning and humorous commentary is sheer delight.
