About this Item

Gabriel Garc?a M?rquez's 1970 novel is widely considered a masterpiece of magic realism, in which the line separating reality and fantasy is blurred and the extraordinary is accepted as ordinary. It also contains what some have considered to be the best first line in literature: "Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buend?a was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice." This work and other literary achievements would earn the Colombian writer, in 1982, a Nobel Prize.
