'Senator Onésimo Sánchez had six months and eleven days to go before his death when he found the woman of his life.' Sweeping through crumbling towns, travelling fairs and windswept ports, Gabriel García Márquez introduces a host of extraordinary characters and communities in his mesmerising tales of everyday life: smugglers, bagpipers, the President and Pope at the funeral of Macondo's revered matriarch; a very old angel with enormous wings, stranded in a young couple's back garden; a town plagued by dying birds that fall from the sky; and an awestruck village captivated by a beautiful drowned sailor. Teeming with the magical oddities for which his novels are loved, Márquez's stories are a delight. 'These stories abound with love affairs, ruined beauty, and magical women. It is essence of Márquez.' Guardian 'Of all the living authors known to me, only one is undoubtedly touched by genius: Gabriel García Márquez.' Sunday Telegraph 'It becomes more and more fun to read. It shows what 'fabulous' really means.' Time Out 'Márquez writes in this lyrical, magical language that no one else can do.' Salman Rushdie
