Jorge Luis Borges & Maria Kodama : The Infinite Encounter Cristina Carrillo de Albornoz Assouline, 2022
Seldom do two exceptional kindred spirits find each other by chance, but this is true of one of the singular literary figures of the twentieth century, Jorge Luis Borges (1899–1986), and his second wife, María Kodama. They met by accident in 1953 in a bookstore in Buenos Aires; she was in high school, he was already an established writer, and he was losing his eyesight. Both infinitely curious and adventurous spirits, they shared a deep interest for many different cultures. Featuring rarely seen photographs, this volume, produced in collaboration with Fundación Internacional Jorge Luis Borges in Buenos Aires, elucidates one of the great love stories of our time, intertwined with Borges’s compelling poems and manuscripts, allowing readers to discover the celebrated Argentine writer’s intriguing oeuvre.
