The Black Corsair

  • Type: Book
  • As Noted In: 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up, Quintessence Editions
In the summer of 1904, at age five, my mother gave me The Black Corsair and The Pirates of Malaysia, books I still own to this day. So at age five I entered those exotic worlds that Salgari created in his numerous novels. I think I even preferred those stories to the more popular and more sophisticated works of Jules Verne. Jorge Luis Borges
