The book for the fourth triennial competition is Jorge Luis Borges's Ficciones, printed in a limited edition of forty-two at the Argentine fine press Ediciones Dos Amigos. First published in 1944, Ficciones includes seventeen short prose pieces designed to challenge a reader's presuppositions and complacency. Largely because of this work, Borges is considered one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century.
