A CLASSIC STORY OF ENDURING LOVE FROM THE NOBEL PRIZE-WINNING AUTHOR
_______________________________

'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?

MEDIA REVIEWS
One of this century's most evocative writers * Anne Tyler *
A delight. The interlocking of the stories, the fantastical and obsessional aspects of Marquez have never been better shown. * Melvyn Bragg *
