Gabriel Garcia Marquez Month

Gabriel Garcia Marquez's Books. (1985) In form, pace and tone, it conforms to what you might expect of a treasured classic of late-19th century European literature: It's an elegant, measured book. Two lovers are separated more than a half-century before being reunited. Now elderly, they take a belated honeymoon on a steamship, and here the novel – like a river heading to sea – opens up into a miraculous allegory of the passage of time and life on the way to everyone's ultimate destination.
