Fifty-one years, nine months and four days ago, Florentino's love was rejected by beautiful Fermina. While she became a model wife, poor Florentio pined for her and has done so ever since, never finding love or peace as he yearns for the day he can woo her again. When Fermina's husband is killed falling from a mango tree, Florentino seizes his chance to declare his enduring love. But can young love find new life in the twilight of their lives? This edition ties in to Mike Newell's long-awaited film of "Love in the Time of Cholera", starring Benjamin Bratt ("Traffic"), which is due for release in January 2008.

Melvyn Bragg 'He has achieved the ultimate purpose of an artist, which is to be able to transform the most significant details of reality into something magical' Shakira 'The most important writer of fiction in any language' Bill Clinton
