Gabriel Garcia Marquez, affectionately known as Gabo, is one of the most influential authors of the last 100 years. Hailing from Colombia, his quintessentially Latin American narratives immerse readers in illuminated realities, where a sense of magic amplifies the minutest of details. Known as magical realism, today the genre is seen in a range of fictional works, but none of its practitioners are as widely celebrated as Gabo. He is credited with popularizing magical realism on an international scale. For this and his dedication to outstanding fiction, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1982. Strange Pilgrims is an exceptional volume in his collection of works. It is composed of twelve short stories with loose connections among them, all displaying his unique talent for making the mundane magical. The works were drafted during Marquez’s most productive decades, but not published until 1992.
