Review:

"As with Emerson, Poe, Hawthorne, every sentence breaks the silence of a vast emptiness, the famous new world of solitude that is the unconscious despair of his characters but the sign of Marquez's genius." The New York Times Book Review

Review:

"For Garcia Marquez the world contains mysteries that we can easily live with, but also miracles that we cannot understand...Leaf Storm, then, brings together both Garcia Marquez's early and late styles. The former deserves our respect, the latter requires our celebration." Newsweek

It was a great book of short stories. Marquez is a brilliant writer, with a lot of insight on Colombia.
