  • onaltı yaşındayken borges'e kitap okuma şansını yakalamış yazar.
  • "okuma günlüğü" kitabında "arjantin bitti. ama onu bitiren piçler hâlâ yaşıyor" diyen kanada vatandaşı arjantinli yazar.

    arjantin (buenos aires) dışında, israil, fransa, italya ve ingiltere'de de yaşamış. çok dillilik, çok kültürlülük kavramlarına örnek verilebilecek canlı bir mikro-organizma.

    yazarlığının yanı başında, çok dile hakim bir çevirmen, antoloji yazarı ve editör olarak da ün kazanmıştır.

    alberto manguel'in literatürde en çok tanınan eseri kuşkusuz hayali yerler sözlüğü'dür.

    öte yandan, okumanın tarihi adını taşıyan kitabı, otuzdan fazla dile çevrilerek beğeni toplamıştır.
  • okumanın tarihi isimli kitabının ön sözünü orhan pamuk'un sessiz ev'inden bir alıntıyla bitirir. içeriği geniş, zaman sırasından bağımsız hareket eden, ilginç ve faydalı bir kitaptı, sayfalarca not almıştım. beni etkileyen en önemli yanı ise yazarın edebi dünyadaki inanılmaz çevresi ve birikimi olmuştu, okurken ezildiğimi hissediyordum.

  • "dil hayatımızı kolaylaştırmak için kullandığımız bir araç değildir, biz kullandığımız dilin ta kendisiyiz, kendimizi onunla tanımlarız, onunla ve ona göre düşünürüz. bu nedenle, atatürk’ün dilin hükümet koltuğundan değiştirilebileceğine, dilin değişiminin yaratıcı süreci derinden etkilemeyebileceğine ilişin düşünceleri bana hep anlaşılmaz geldi. bana kalırsa dil yeni bir yasanın çıkarılmasıyla; “dışarıdan” ya da “yukarıdan” değiştirilemez" diyor burada.
