Search - List of Books by Alastair Reid

Alastair Reid (born 1926) is a poet and a scholar of South American literature from Galloway in Scotland. He is known for his lighthearted style of poems and for his translations of South American poets Jorge Luis Borges and Pablo Neruda. Although he is famous for translations, his own poems are gaining note. He has lived in Spain, Switzerland, Greece, Morocco, throughout Latin America, and in the United States, where he was employed by The New Yorker magazine.

In 1984, in an interview in the Wall Street Journal, Reid admitted fabricating many details of his reporting from Spain for the New Yorker, including inventing places and ascribing statements to composite characters. He said these inventions were an attempt to present "a larger truth, of which facts form a part."

There is also a film director of the same name who directed Tales of the City, not the same person; they are friends.
