From the Nobel Prize-winning author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, a series of short stories told in spare, unpretentious...picturesque prose (Library Journal)

Written with compassionate realism and wit, the stories in this mesmerizing collection depict the disparities of town and village life in South America, of the frightfully poor and outrageously rich, of memories and illusions, and of lost opportunities and present joys.

Stories include:
*No One Writes to the Colonel
*Tuesday Siesta
*One of These Days
*There Are No Thieves in This Town
*Balthazar's Marvelous Afternoon
*Montiel's Widow
*One Day after Saturday
*Artificial Roses

Review:

''A rare combination of grace and vibrancy. Every scene, every gesture, signs life and denies death . . . He is an absolute master.'' --New York Times

''[These stories] are told in spare, unpretentious, but picturesque prose, compassionate of human frailty but also rich in wit and irony. The characters are all too human, alternately humorous and tragic.'' --Library Journal

''Garcia Marquez' style is direct and matter-of-fact; in attitude, he accepts these characters with the same inevitability as they accept the heat and the rain.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''García Márquez creates an absolute jewel of a novella in No One Writes to the Colonel, a story that evokes the entire range of human emotions from misplaced hope to blackest cynicism.'' --Oprah.com
