This is a short pamphlet containing two magical realist short stories by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Strange, wondrous things happen in these two short stories, which are both the perfect introduction to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and a wonderful read for anyone who loves the magic and marvels of his novels. After days of rain, a couple find an old man with huge wings in their courtyard in 'A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings' - but is he an angel? Accompanying 'A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings' is the short story 'The Sea of Lost Time', in which a seaside town is brought back to life by a curious smell of roses. "The most important writer of fiction in any language". (Bill Clinton). "Marquez has influenced the world". (Carolina Herrera). "Marquez is wonderful on the transformative and redemptive powers of love ...storytelling magic". (Tatler). Gabriel Garcia Marquez (1927- ) was born in Aracataca, Colombia. His most recent book, Memories of My Melancholy Whores, is his first new novel to be published in a decade and is available as a Penguin Paperback.
