About the book:

The New York Tmes: "Strange things happen in the land of Marquez. As with Emerson, Poe, Hawthorne, every sentence breaks the silence of a vast emptiness, the famous New World 'solitude' that is the unconscious despair of his characters but the sign of Marquez's genius." Library Journal: "[These stories] are told in spare, unpretentious but picturesque prose, compassionate of human frailty, but also rich in wit and irony. The characters are all too human, alternately humorous and tragic." The New York Times Book Review: "A rare combination of grace and vibrancy. Every scene, every gesture sings life and denies death... He is an absolute master."
