On April 17, discuss One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
A classic novel known throughout the world, this book is one of the 20th century’s enduring works of art and the ultimate achievement in the author’s Nobel Prize-winning career.
One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the story of the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendia family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad, and alive with unforgettable men and women–brimming with truth, compassion, and a lyrical magic that strikes the soul – this novel is a masterpiece in the art of fiction.
