Synopsis

Collected Stories brings together many of Gabriel Garcìa Márquez's spellbinding short stories, each brimming with a blend of the surreal, the magical, and the everyday that Nobel-Prize-winner and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude Márquez is known for.

Sweeping through crumbling towns, travelling fairs and windswept ports, Gabriel Garcìa Márquez introduces a host of extraordinary characters and communities in his mesmerizing tales of everyday life: smugglers, bagpipers, the President and Pope at the funeral of Macondo's revered matriarch; a every 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 Garcìa Márquez' Sunday Telegraph

'It becomes more and more fun to read. It shows what "fabulous" really means' Time Out
