Vargas Llosa teaches seminar on Borges

A dream course: one famous writer teaches the work of another, and then wins the Nobel Prize during the semester. Caveats: you have to go to Princeton and you have to be able to follow his lectures in Spanish.
(When I was an undergraduate, Borges was still alive--barely--and he came to Austin for a brief visit. A Spanish grad student in my French class got to serve him tea at a reception. I was not invited.)
