Jorge Luis Borges
If "The Jewbird" by Malamud is one of the favorites works, "The South" by Jorge Luis Borges is another one. Borges was born in Buenos Aires, 1899 and died in 1986. His stories are full of magic. Many times the reader is confused in the time, sometimes it is difficult to know where the reality starts and where a dream ends.
I am not good in literature but I like to read it. I think that our spirit is like our body, they both need to be feed.
