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. Innocent Eréndira 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 titular story is considered one of his best works. This was Marquez’s first book-length publication of fiction after the monumental success of 100 Years of Solitude.

This first American edition, first printing is in fine condition. In the original blue cloth boards, fine. Text block fine. Top edge dyed red. Deckled fore edge. In the original dust jacket, fine and bright.
