A short story, sold at the price of a novel
on June 19, 2014
The short story itself is quite typical of Marquez - wonderful writing and evoking in great detail, the atmosphere of a faraway culture in times past. However, this is a short story which is sold at the price of a novel, albeit padded out with pages of descriptions of all Marquez's other writings. I would have been happier if there had been more than one short story, but as it stands, it seems to be cashing in on the passing of a great writer.
