The twenty-six always compelling, often astonishing, stories in this collection are published in chronological order, so readers can appreciate the Nobel prize-winning writer's progress from early experimentation, to full-blown magical realism. Each tale is not just a read, but an experience: you join a community in the thrall of a corpse in `The Handsomest Drowned Man in the World'; sail through `The Last Voyage of the Ghost Ship' a five-page story written as a single sentence, and feel your way, blinded, through `The Night of the Curlews'. `A single sentence of Garcia Marquez often has more meat to it than many whole novels' Observer.
