    100 års ensomhed er den fabulerende farverige og fantastiske krønike om den ensomt beliggende landsby Macondo og dens store Buendia-slægt med dens mangfoldige skæbner.Det er ægteparret José og Ursula Buendia, fætter og kusine, som engang i 1800-tallets begyndelse grundlægger flækken. Márquez befolker den med en broget skare af lidenskabelige kvinder, eventyrlystne mænd, pjaltede sigøjnere og hvileløse ånder. Trods frygten for indavl drages slægtens mænd på forunderlig vis generation efter generation mod slægtens kvinder alt imens moderne landvindinger på godt og ondt trænger sig på udefra. Men Buendia-familien er underlagt den skæbne, som bogens titel hentyder til: menneskets ensomhed.Under magien og fablen finder man Márquez’ indignation over socialuretfærdighed og hans litterære protest mod de politiske forhold.PRESSEN SKREV:»»100 års ensomhed« rummer en strøm af sanselighed, humor og vidtfavnende kreativitet. Man fornemmer duften af oregano og overvældes af fantasirigdommen.« ***** – Eva Pohl, Berlingske

    Nobelprisvinderen Gabriel García Márquez hylder fortællingen om den store og altfortærende kærlighed, men fremviser stadig den trussel, som tiden og hverdagen udgør mod den. Kærlighed i koleraens tid (1985) er historien om en kærlighed, der kunne vente 53 år, 7 måneder og 11 dage. Så langt tilbage ligger koleraens tid, hvor Florentino begyndte at elske Fermina, der dog giftede sig med en anden. Men han dør ... endelig. Da doktor Juvenal Urbino pinsedag falder død ned af en stige, under et forsøg på at fange sin undslupne papegøje, står en anden mand parat til at dele bord og seng med enken, Fermina Daza. Florentino Ariza har elsket hende lidenskabeligt – om end langt fra trofast – gennem hele livet. I deres ungdom forsmåede hun ham til fordel for doktoren. Det var på den tid, da koleraen hærgede. Og symptomerne på kærlighed og kolera er i alt væsentligt de samme. Bogen udkommer som en del af Rosinantes klassikerserie. »En fabelagtig fejring af de mange former for kærlighed, der eksisterer mellem mænd og kvinder.« – The Times »Genistreg af en bog« – Information
