There are novels, like journeys, which you never want to end: this is one of them. One seventh of July at six in the afternoon, a woman of 71 and a man of 78 ascend a gangplank and begin one of the greatest adventures in modern literature. The man is Florentino Ariza, President of the Carribean River Boat Company; the woman is his childhood sweetheart, the recently widowed Fermina Daza. She has earache. He is bald and lame. Their journey up-river, at an age when they can expect 'nothing more in life', holds out a shimmering promise: the consummation of an amor interruptus spanning half a century. LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA is one of the most uplifting romances of our times. An epiphany to late-flowering love, it holds out the subversive promise that you can have what you wish for: you may just have to wait. Set on the Colombian coast in the early part of this century, it is, arguably even more so than ONE HUNDRED YEARS OF SOLITUDE which won him the Nobel Prize, the crowning work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. 'My best, ' he says of it. 'The novel that was written from my gut. ' Publication is timed to tie in with the launch of Marquez' new novel, NEWS OF A KIDNAPPING, by Jonathan Cape on 3 July.

Recensioner i media

"A rich, commodious novel whose narrative power is matched only by its generosity of vision." --"The New York Times" "A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy . . . humane, richly comic, almost unbearably touching and altogether extraordinary." --"Newsweek" "The greatest luxury, as in all of Garcia Marquez's books, is the eerie, entirely convincing suspension of the laws of reality . . . the agelessness of the human story as told by one of this century's most evocative writers." --Anne Tyler, "Chicago Sun-Times Book Week" "Revolutionary in daring to suggest that vows of love made under a presumption of immortality--youthful idiocy, to some--may yet be honored, much later in life when we ought to know better, in the face of the undeniable. . . . A shining and heartbreaking book." --Thomas Pynchon, "The New York Times Book Review " "This shining and heartbreaking novel may be one of the greatest love stories ever told." --"The New York Times Book Review ""A love story of astonishing power.... Altogether extraordinary." --"Newsweek " "Brilliant, provocative...magical...splendid writing." --"Chicago Tribune " "Beguiling, masterly storytelling.... Garcia Marquez writes about love as saving grace, the force that makes life worthwhile." --"Newsday " "A sumptuous book...[with] major themes of love, death, the torments of memory, the inexorability of old age." --"The Washington Post Book World"
