Nobel prize winner and author of One Hundred Years of Solitude Gabriel García Márquez tells a tale of an unrequited love that outlasts all rivals in his masterpiece Love in the Time of Cholera.

'It was inevitable: the scent of bitter almonds always reminded him of the fate of unrequited love'

Fifty-one years, nine months and four days have passed since Fermina Daza rebuffed hopeless romantic Florentino Ariza's impassioned advances and married Dr Juvenal Urbino instead. During that half-century, Flornetino has fallen into the arms of many delighted women, but has loved none but Fermina. Having sworn his eternal love to her, he lives for the day when he can court her again.

When Fermina's husband is killed trying to retrieve his pet parrot from a mango tree, Florentino seizes his chance to declare his enduring love. But can young love find new life in the twilight of their lives?

Review:

No lover of fiction can fail to respond to the grace of Márquez's writing (Sunday Telegraph)

A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy (Newsweek)

An amazing celebration of the many kinds of love between men and women... among Márquez's best fiction (The Times)

One of this century's most evocative writers (Anne Tyler)

A delight. The interlocking of the stories, the fantastical and obsessional aspects of Márquez have never been better shown. (Melvyn Bragg)
