Labyrinths, by Jorge Luis Borges

A collection of short stories, narrated by Henry Strozier. These collected short stories deal not only with literal physical labyrinths, but labyrinths of time, space, and the mind. They are not calculated to excite the senses, but the intellect; demanding and teasing with shifting perceptions, motivations, realities. They seem very dry for the author of the emotional smorgasborg which is Love in the Time of Cholera, sometimes seemingly intellectual exercises.

Strozier's voice occasionally approximates Rod Serling's, with unintentional hilarity.
