About this title

Synopsis:

General Simon Bolivar, ?the Liberator? of five South American countries, takes a last melancholy journey down the Magdalena River, revisiting cities along its shores, and reliving the triumphs, passions, and betrayals of his life. Infinitely charming, prodigiously successful in love, war and politics, he still dances with such enthusiasm and skill that his witnesses cannot believe he is ill. Aflame with memories of the power that he commanded and the dream of continental unity that eluded him, he is a moving exemplar of how much can be won?and lost?in a life.

?A stunning portrait, convincing and poignant. . . . A tour de force.? -- San Francisco Chronicle

?Passage after passage shines with the brilliance of Mr. García Márquez. . . . He has invented some of the magic characters of our age. His general, however, is not only magic, but real.? -- The Wall Street Journal

?As usual, García Márquez?s craftsmanship is nothing less than superb. His General?s story is tragic; his telling of it is luminous.? -- The Dallas Morning News
