Fishburn and Hughes: "A French novelist, short-story writer, journalist and essayist, editor for a time of the Nouvelle Revue Francaise. He visited Argentina in 1933, when he met Borges and became one of the first critics to recognise his genius. On his return to France he declared: 'Borges vaut le voyage' ('Borges is worth the journey')." (62)
