Love in the Time of Cholera - Penguin Modern Classics (Paperback)Gabriel Garcia Marquez (author)
A luminous tale of a man rejected by his first true love who refuses to forget her, Love in the Time of Cholera is another timeless masterpiece from the Nobel Prize-winning author of One Hundred Years of Solitude.
'It was inevitable: the scent of bitter almonds always reminded him of the fate of unrequited love'
Fifty-one years, nine months and four days have passed since Fermina Daza rebuffed hopeless romantic Florentino Ariza's impassioned advances and married Dr Juvenal Urbino instead. During that half-century, Flornetino has fallen into the arms of many delighted women, but has loved none but Fermina.
When Fermina's husband is killed trying to retrieve his pet parrot from a mango tree, Florentino seizes his chance to declare his enduring love. But can young love find new life in the twilight of their lives?
