Review quote

"A brilliantly moving tour de force." --A.S. Byatt, "The New York Times Book Review" "A work of considerable beguilement and edge. . . . Garcia Marquez retains a vital and remarkable voice, and the pen of an angel." --"Los Angeles Times Book Review" "Captivating. . . . Evokes the texture of a civilization, while its emotional range, from the comic to the mystical, exhibits a reach rarely found in fictions on a larger scale." --"The Boston Globe" "Luminous. . . . Demonstrates that one of the masters of the form is still working at the height of his powers." --"The New York Times"
