Gabriel Garc a M rquez's finest and most famous work, the Nobel Prize-winning One Hundred Years of Solitude chronicles, through the course of a century, life in Macondo and the lives of six Buend a generations-from Jos Arcadio and rsula, through their son, Colonel Aureliano Buend a (who commands numerous revolutions and fathers eighteen additional Aurelianos), through three additional Jos Arcadios, through Remedios the Beauty and Renata Remedios, to the final Aureliano, child of an incestuous union. As babies are born and the world's "great inventions" are introduced into Macondo, the village grows and becomes more and more subject to the workings of the outside world, to its politics and progress, and to history itself. And the Buend as and their fellow Macondons advance in years, experience, and wealth . . . until madness, corruption, and death enter their homes. Gabriel Garc a M rquez's classic novel weaves a magical tapestry of the everyday and the fantastic, the humdrum and the miraculous, life and death, tragedy and comedy--a tapestry in which the noble, the ridiculous, the beautiful, and the tawdry all contribute to an astounding vision of human life and death, a full measure of humankind's inescapable potential and reality.

"One Hundred Years of Solitude is the first piece of literature since the Book of Genesis that should be required reading for the entire human race."--New York Times Book Review--New York Times
