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:

The 12 stories in this shimmering collection poignantly depict South Americans adrift in Europe. Combining terror and nostalgia, surreal comedy and the poetry of the commonplace, Strange Pilgrims is a triumph of narrative sorcery by the Nobel Prize-winning author of One Hundred Years of Solitude.

Leslie Richman, May 27, 2009 (view all comments by Leslie Richman)
Strange Pilgrims is a concise and enjoyable compilation of short stories Marquez wrote over several years. In the the author's own inimitable style, the foreward is just as engaging as the stories! Marquez explains the chronology of the stories and then allows the reader to each one with context in mind. The stories are complete with plots that pull the reader in with laughs, thoughts to ponder, and a lasting satisfaction once the tale has ended.
