Alberto Manguel really should be an heir to some sort of fortune, for how could someone like him not be in possession of great sums of cash? He has no full-time job. He is elegantly dressed. Stevenson and Borges are both all over Manguel’s most famous book, A History of Reading, from 1996. In the 2010 collection A Reader on Reading, which includes work from 1993 to 2009, every essay is prefaced by a quotation from Lewis Carroll’s writing. His mother’s family were Russian Jews who moved to one of the agricultural colonies, established for Jews by the philanthropist Maurice de Hirsch, in the Argentine interior; from there, they later moved to Buenos Aires.

Turning his inspired anthologizing skills to two subjects we can all relate to, celebrated writer and editor Alberto Manguel offers his most fascinating literary collections yet. Manguel brings his quirky sensibility and instinct for exceptional writing to a core realm of human experience, presenting an outstanding array of international voices that delve into the mystery of these primary relationships. Both volumes feature an exceptional collection of complete short stories, each selection accompanied by a provocative introduction from the editor. With such writing talents as Richard Ford, Kensaburo Oe, Margaret Atwood, Bharati Mukherjee, Ethan Canin, Anita Desai, and many others, Mothers & Daughters and Fathers & Sons explode the typical and plunge us into a literary world at turns humorous, dark, touching, bizarre, and moving.
