'Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendia was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice'
Gabriel Garcia Marquez's great masterpiece is thestory of seven generations of the Buendia familyand of Macondo, the town they have built. Thoughlittle more than a settlement surrounded bymountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters,even its wonders and its miracles. A microcosm ofColumbian life, its secrets lie hidden, encoded in abook, and only Aureliano Buendia can fathom itsmysteries and reveal its shrouded destiny. Blending political reality with magic realism, fantasy andcomic invention,One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of the most daringly original works of the twentieth century.'
