Collected here are twenty six of Gabriel Garcia Maruez's most brilliant and enchanting short stories presented in the chronological order of their publication in Spanish from thre Only his own death came between him and his grave Resigned he listened to the drop thick heavy exact as it dripped in the other world in the mistaken and absurd world of rational creatures In twenty six stories from Eyes of a Blue Dog Big Mama s Funeral and The Incredible and Sad Tale of lnnocent Er ndira and Her Heartless Grandmother the greatness of Gabriel Garc a M ruez is confirmed once again Stories of communities torn apart by dispute poverty and superstition Stories of communities brought together by hope and love and the daily struggle to survive Towns where angels with gigantic wings roam free demons spread their stink which the perfume of roses cannot disguise women are either revered figures or seductresses that search for an escape from a bleak reality Either way it is women that hold the strings to the puppet show of a paranoid world Every day I try to remember the phrase with which I am to find you I said Now I don t think I ll forget it tomorrow Still I ve always said the same thing and when I wake up I ve always forgotten what the words I can find you with are Eyes of A Blue Dog It would be impossible to choose my favourite stories in the array of crumbling towns and dirty harbours In the company of fairs civil servants and officials shady encounters and enterprises and otherworldly women In the nights of August with its melancholy and strange magnetism all things are possible I remembered the August nights in whose wondrous silence nothing could be heard except the millenary sound that the earth makes as it spins on its rusty unoiled axis Suddenly I felt overcome by an overwhelming sadness Since it s Sunday and it s stopped raining I think I ll take a bouuet of roses to my grave Birds are breaking windows invading houses only to die inside In the August heat the deserted streets unwashed because of the droughts are suffocating the pedestrians with the stench of death What does the troubled priest actually see around him The Wandering Jew or the Devil himself Blind women try to warn others with their vision but who believes them Wives ask to be buried alive and a town is visited by the travelling show of the woman who was turned into a spider for having disobeyed her parents The isolated ruined towns have lost their multicoloured glory eaten away by the vicious sun and the cruel sea And there is no mercy in store for the residents If we find each other sometimes put your ear to my ribs when I sleep on the left side and you ll hear me echoing Eyes of a Blue Dog A sensual haunting mesmerizing elegy of a relationship in a dream Someone Has Been Disarranging These Roses Who is the ghost Who is dead Who is alive A tale of loneliness isolation sanctity and sacred roses Monologue of Isabel Watching It Rain in Macondo The desire for rain becomes an unimaginable terror for the community of Macondo A story that represents the uniue lyrical voice of M ruez The Incredible and Sad Tale of Innocent Erendira and Her heartless Grandmother One of the most powerful cruel raw stories by M ruez How much does innocence cost in a community that cannot find its way through the darknessEvery passage written by M ruez is a revelation of the power of Literature Its magic its lyrical voice its mesmerizing uality to carry you in dark worlds into your soul In a site that supposedly promotes reading it is astonishing to see many readers dismissing M ruez on the grounds of magical realism and being incomprehensible How about you try a little The angel was the only one who took no part in his own act He spent his time trying to get comfortable in his borrowed nest befuddled by the hellish heat of the oil lamps and sacramental candles that had been placed along the wire She s done a lot of travelling Mr Herbert said She s carrying behind the flowers from all the seas of the world My reviews can also be found on
