Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From South America's Nobel Prize-winning author of the renowned classic One Hundred Years of Solitude and the international bestseller Love in the Time of Cholera comes an extraordinary collection of short fiction focusing on Latin Americans visiting or living in contemporary Europe.

Synopsis:

In Barcelona, an aging Brazilian prostitute trains her dog to weep at the grave she has chosen for herself. In Vienna, a woman parlays her gift for seeing the future into a fortunetelling position with a wealthy family. In Geneva, an ambulance driver and his wife take in the lonely, apparently dying ex-President of a Caribbean country, only to discover that his political ambition is very much intact.

In these twelve masterly stories about the lives of Latin Americans in Europe, Garcia Marquez conveys the peculiar amalgam of melancholy, tenacity, sorrow, and aspiration that is the emigre experience.

From the Trade Paperback edition.
