Description

From the Nobel Prize–winning author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, a series of short stories told in "spare,
unpretentious...picturesque prose" (Library
Journal
)


Written with compassionate realism and wit, the stories in
this mesmerizing collection depict the disparities of town and village life in
South America, of the frightfully poor and outrageously rich, of memories and
illusions, and of lost opportunities and present joys. Stories include "No One
Writes to the Colonel," "Tuesday Siesta," "One of These Days," "There Are No
Thieves in This Town," "Balthazar's
Marvelous Afternoon," "Montiel's Widow," "One Day after Saturday," "Artificial
Roses," and "Big Mama's Funeral."
