Autographs - Jorge Luis Borges

(Click the image to enlarge it.)

I heard Jorge Luis Borges speak at USC's Bovard Auditorium. I asked for his autograph after the speech. Borges was blind. His assistant positioned my book and Borges' hand, and Borges scrawled the illegible autograph you see here.

  1. Audrey and I heard Borges do a reading of "Labyrinths" when we were students at the University of Iowa in the 1970s. He made a huge positive impression on us. But we didn't get his autograph!
