ONE OF THE WORLD'S MOST FAMOUS BOOKS AND WINNER OF THE NOBEL PRIZE FOR LITERATURE_______________________________'Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice'Gabriel Garcia Marquez's great masterpiece is the story of seven generations of the Buendia family and of Macondo, the town they built.

Though little more than a settlement surrounded by mountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters, even its wonders and its miracles.

A microcosm of Columbian life, its secrets lie hidden, encoded in a book, and only Aureliano Buendia can fathom its mysteries and reveal its shrouded destiny.

Blending political reality with magic realism, fantasy and comic invention, One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the most daringly original works of the twentieth century. _______________________________'Should be required reading for the entire human race' The New York Times'The book that sort of saved my life' Emma Thompson'No lover of fiction can fail to respond to the grace of Marquez's writing' Sunday Telegraph
