'A long, satisfying and penetrating gaze into the private life of an acknowledged genius, his work, his evasions, and his peculiar heartaches, "Georgie & Elsa" is the book that all lovers of Borges have longed for. It is a poignant story, at times a dark and hilarious narrative, and the most accurate portrait of the man and his method, by his closest collaborator and best translator.' PAUL THEROUX
‘Quirky and engaging.’ TELEGRAPH
'A ringside seat at an ill-fated marriage.' TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
‘This is a brilliant book – searing, unputdownable, fair minded, scrupulous and a real corrective to the Borges industry and the nonsense that industry promulgates.’ CARLO GEBLER
‘Di Giovanni’s book is the most explicit record one is likely to read of a writer’s domestic unhappiness.’ THE SPECTATOR
‘A hugely funny book that shrugs off the bizarre cloak of quasi-religious deference that has been shrouding Borges since his death.’ CATHOLIC HERALD
