Gabriel García Márquez. One of the 20th century's enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world, and the ultimate achievement of a Nobel Prize winning career. The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the family. A wide-ranging and revealing book, Gabriel García Márquez: The Last Interview is an essential book for lifelong fans of García Márquez-and readers who are just getting encountering the master's work for the first time.

One Hundred Years of Solitude. To evoke this extraordinary destiny, the García Márquez mixes fiction with history. Under his pen, the historic hero becomes a man in a Promethean duel with history and time. One Hundred Years of Solitude follows the epic of the foundation, greatness and decline of the fictitious village of Macondo and its pioneering and most illustrious family, the Buendias, who live their lives struggling against failings of the Colombian republic and the ordeals of fate, time and existence. The Autumn of the Patriarch. This book was written with a watchmaker’s precision.

Garcia Marquez has extraordinary strength and firmness of imagination and writes with the calmness of a man who knows exactly what wonders hecan perform. He is an absolute master. - "New York Times""It is the genius of Garcia Marquez that fatalism and possibility somehow coexist, that dreams redeem, that there is laughter even in death. - Jonathan Leonard, "New York Times".

Novelist Mona Simpson reflects on a legacy that extends far beyond 'magical realism'. In one of Gabriel García Márquez's early imperishable stories, a man whose baby has a fever goes out into a rainstorm to throw crabs from the house into the sea; he and his wife think their stench may be causing the baby's illness. On the way back, he discovers an old man in his courtyard. The old man has enormous wings, like a buzzard's, "dirty and half-plucked" and spattered with mud. He speaks a dialect the man and his wife don't understand – they assume he's.

Three of Garcia Marquez's classic short novels--Leaf Storm, No One Writes to the Colonel, and Chronicle of a Death Foretold--available in one volume.

The three stories all had a little something for everyone. My favorite was Chronicle Of A Death Foretold, because even though it seemed a bit silly that no one told the man he was about to die, Marquez's narrator painted such a perfect picture using a journalistic approach through interviews which gave it a stranger than fiction quality and brought it all together. The first novella Leaf Storm was a little difficult in the beginning and had this Faulkner vibe about it, but the execution left something wanting, though the very elements one can expect from Marquez were all present, just not fully developed and a little all over the place with the ever changing point of view. But the second story No One Writes To The Colonel was right on point. The setting was well developed and the colonel and his wife were a trip though quite sad the way they'd been waiting for his pension for so long, and the rooster who bore his hopes, and their son.....
This is the third book of the Latin genius Gabriel Garcia Marquez that I have read. One Hundred Years of Solitude, and initially, Love in the Time of Cholera, have been my other delving looks into this author. His "magical realism" simply transports me into another world. I only wish that my Spanish were as developed so as to read it in its original language. He is a genius writer, a creator of stunning landscapes, characters, and plot. A well deserved Nobel Prize winner for literature.
My favorite author! The first story I ever read of his was Chronicle of a Death Foretold and I have yet to read the other two in this collection. If you are new to Gabo you will not be disappointed, his stories are complex, magical, and illuminating! If you've only read his novels, take the time to read his novellas and short stories, they've stuck with me for years!
Great condition, wonderful collection of stories.
love IT
Convenient to have all three in one book.
love it
GGM is one of the great writers of the 20th century. This book contains 3 stories and is a nice collection to catch up on some Latin American literature!
