9780060114176: No One Writes to the Colonel and Other Stories

"These stories are told in spare, unpretentious but picturesque prose, compassionate of human frailty, but also rich in wit and irony. The characters are all too human, alternately humorous and tragic."-- Library Journal

Gabriel Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982.

Review:

''A rare combination of grace and vibrancy. Every scene, every gesture, signs life and denies death . . . He is an absolute master.'' --New York Times

''[These stories] are told in spare, unpretentious, but picturesque prose, compassionate of human frailty but also rich in wit and irony. The characters are all too human, alternately humorous and tragic.'' --Library Journal

''Garcia Marquez' style is direct and matter-of-fact; in attitude, he accepts these characters with the same inevitability as they accept the heat and the rain.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''García Márquez creates an absolute jewel of a novella in No One Writes to the Colonel, a story that evokes the entire range of human emotions from misplaced hope to blackest cynicism.'' --Oprah.com
