Review:

"A fascinating tour de force and a moving tribute to an extraordinary man." -Margaret Atwood, "New York Times Book Review" "A distinguished book...Garcia Marquez splendidly presents his image of Latin America and of a great man redux." -"Los Angeles Times Book Review""A stunning portrait, convincing and poignant." -"San Francisco Chronicle""Passage after passage shines with the brilliance of Garcia Marquez...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, Garcia Marquez's craftsmanship is nothing less than superb. His General's story is tragic; his telling of it is luminous." -"Dallas Morning News" Translated and with a new Introduction by Edith Grossman
