Matt Crawford speaks with author Jay Parini about his book Borges and Me. A book fifty years in the making, hold on and get ready to go for a ride. As an aspiring author running from the Vietnam draft Parini finds himself at the great Scottish institution of St. Andrews. Through kismet and happenstance, he is asked to be a tour guide-caretaker for the blind and aged author, Jorge Luis Borges. What follows is a hysterical, poignant and meaningful jaunt though the Scottish Highlands in an old car, with a young author and a literary giant. A fun and touching read that will brighten your day and lend some great life perspective.
