Chronicle of a Death Foretold (82 Edition)by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
"EXQUISITELY HARROWING . . . . Very strange and brilliantly conceived. . . . A sort of metaphysical murder mystery. . . . The murder will stand among the innumerable murders of modern literature as one of the best and most powerfully rendered."
A mysterious and haunting tale of romance and murder, that begins with the marriage of a man and a woman in love. But when he inexplicably mistreats his beloved on the night of the wedding, he is in turn murdered by her brothers, and we are left with a strange sense of inevitability and passions gone terribly awry.
From the Paperback edition.
"As pungent and memorable as a sharp spice, an examination of the nature of complicity and fate...an exquisite performance." The Christian Science Monitor
"A writer of supernal gifts....It is always a pleasure to be transported to Garcia Márquez's remote and mystical region, to spend a few hours in the grip of an enchanting storyteller." Chicago Tribune
"This investigation of an ancient murder takes on the quality of a hallucinatory exploration, a deep, groping search into the gathering darkness of human intentions for a truth that continually slithers away." The New York Review of Books
