Gabriel Garcia Marquez - A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings
Strange, wondrous things happen in these two short stories, A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings and The Sea of Lost Time, which are both the perfect introduction to Gabriel García Márquez, and a wonderful read for anyone who loves the magic and marvels of his novels. 'The world had been sad since Tuesday. Sea and sky were a single ash-grey thing and the sands of the beach, which on March nights glimmered like powered light, had become a stew of mud and rotten shellfish. The light, was so weak at noon that when Pelayo was coming back to the house after throwing away the crabs, it was hard for him to see what it was that was moving and groaning in the rear of the courtyard. He had to go very close to see that It was and old man, lying face down in the mud, who, in spite of his tremendous efforts, couldn't get up impeded by his enormous wings.' A celebration of one of the world's most loved writers. Sixteen beautiful new editions, also available in ebook for the first time.
