9780140157543: Chronicle of a Death Foretold

A mesmerizing work... the novel sets out to reconstruct a murder that occurred twenty seven years before... Marquez's chronicle moves backwards and fowards in time... An unusual and original work: a simple narrative so charged with irony that it has the authority of political fable - Bill Buford - The Times Literary Supplement.

Product Description:

Setting out to reconstruct a murder that took place 27 years earlier, this chronicle moves backwards and forwards in time, through the contradictions of memory and moments lost in time. Its irony gives the book the nuances of a political fable.

Review:

My favourite book by one of the world's greatest authors. You're in the hands of a master ( Mariella Frostrup)

A work of high explosiveness – the proper stuff of Nobel prizes. An exceptional novel. ( The Times)

A masterpiece ( Evening Standard)

Brilliant writer, brilliant book (Dan Rhodes, The Guardian)
