Jorge Luis Borges: "The Gospel According to Mark"


This morning I listened to Paul Theroux reading Jorge Luis Borges' "The Gospel According to Mark" via a New Yorker podcast. The story is marvelous and I recommend it. You can listen to Theroux reading it, along with his commentary afterwards, by clicking here or right clicking to save it. The mp3 is 21:57 long.

UPDATE June 28, 2008: An anonymous reader provided this link to read the story. Thanks!
