Once a year, somebody sends me a “Jewish book” for the holidays. Not sure if they are trying to be cute, or maybe trying to get me in touch with my heritage, but those two copies of “1,001 Jewish Recipes” still collect dust in my closet to this day.
So it was a pleasant surprise when I opened up a package containing The Kosher Guide to Imaginary Animals (Tachyon Books) to read about “Borges”:
Of Argentinean origin, this blind magical creature has, over time, replaced all of it’s human flesh with the pulp of books.
Also, the recipe on how to cook the Mongolian death worm is helpful.
