Today on Google’s home page is a special logo for Jorge Luis Borges. His birthday was today 112 years ago.
He is most well known for his books named Ficciones in 1944 and The Aleph in 1949. The books are in the genre of science fiction and in the genre of “magic realism.” As you can see from the logo, there is that “magic realism” feel from it.
Borges was born in Argentina and died at the age of 86 in Geneva, Switzerland on June 14, 1986. He was fluent in several languages but he mostly spoke Spanish.
In 1961 he received the first International Publishers’ Prize, the Prix Formentor and then years later in 1971 he won the Jerusalem Prize.
