Winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Colombian writer Gabriel Garcie Marquez is regarded as one of the world's greatest storytellers. One Hundred Years of Solitude, his masterpiece of magic realism, is the story of the multi-generational Buendia family and their founding of Macondo, a town as much of the imagination as of the real world, where the marvelous and mundane are inextricably intertwined, and where the experiences of the characters offer profound insights into the inescapability of fate and personal destiny.
