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.

Review:

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

A masterpiece (Evening Standard)
