Borges's widow threatens remixer with prison


[Read the post]


I was hoping for some mention of Kathy Acker in the article, as an earlier example of this kind of literary sampling and remixing. I wonder if some of her more blatant examples (and they were all pretty blatant) are in print nowadays… the estate of Harold Robbins could have a field day.


In general I would say any publicity is good publicity, but Borges doesn’t really need publicity.


But I think publicity could always use a little Borges.


Somehow, when I read that, my mind substituted “Borgia’s” and “poison”.


I wonder what she’d think of my story ‘Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote’.
