A Universe of Books: Borges 'Library of Babel'

Posted on October 7, 2008

Professor of Mathematics Bill Goldbloom Bloch's new book, "The Unimaginable Mathematics of Borges' Library of Babel" (Oxford University Press, 192 pages, $19.95), earned a glowing review from Alberto Manguel, writing in The New York Sun.

Mr. Bloch, professor of mathematics at Wheaton College, has woven an elegant, ingenious, scholarly interpretation of Borges's text that contradicts the disingenuous "unimaginable" of his title.
