One of the twentieth century's enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is awidely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world and the ultimateachievement in a Nobel Prize–winning career.

The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of themythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. Rich andbrilliant, it is a chronicle of life, death, and the tragicomedy of humankind.In the beautiful, ridiculous, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one seesall of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo,one sees all of Latin America.

Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youthand senility, the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peaceand truth—these universal themes dominate the novel. Alternately reverentialand comical, One Hundred Years ofSolitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a newconsciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, thisstunning work is no less than an account of the history of the human race.
