About the Book

“García Márquez has extraordinary strength and firmness of imagination and writes with the calmness of a man who knows exactly what wonders he can perform.” — Alfred Kazin, New York Times Book Review

Collected here are twenty-six of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's most brilliant and enchanting short stories, presented in the chronological order of their publication in Spanish from three volumes: Eyes of a Blue Dog, Big Mama's Funeral, and The Incredible and Sad Tale of lnnocent Eréndira and Her Heartless Grandmother. Combining mysticism, history, and humor, the stories in this collection span more than two decades, illuminating the development of Marquez's prose and exhibiting the themes of family, poverty, and death that resound throughout his fiction.

Critical Praise

“The stories are rich and startling in their matter and confident and eloquent in their manner...They are the word cannot be avoided--magical.” — John Updike, The New Yorker

“García Márquez has extraordinary strength and firmness of imagination and writes with the calmness of a man who knows exactly what wonders he can perform.” — Alfred Kazin, New York Times Book Review

“It is the genius of García Márquez that fatalism and possibility somehow coexist, that dreams redeem, that there is laughter even in death.” — John Leonard, New York Times
