Gabriel Garcia Marquez

He was still too young to know that the heart’s memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good; and that thanks to this artifice we manage to endure the burden of the past.

  1. Beautiful. It’s really been too long since I last read Marquez, and I’m going through a seemingly endless Dickens phase right now; but I’ve got a couple hundred pages of Bleak House left and then I really must revisit Love in the Time of Cholera or Living to Tell the Tale.

    1. Whew,Dickens!
      I don’t know I’m never that enticed by his books; they all remind me of a cliche storyline and a boring language. (I hope I’m wrong!)

      As for Marquez,I bought 4 of his lesser known works yesterday: Collected Stories,Living to Tell the Tale,Innocent Erendira and Other Stories,and News of a Kidnapping.I want to read them before going through Love in the Time of Cholera and of course One Hundred Years of Solitude.
      I also wish to read Leaf Storm and No One Writes to the Colonel one day…

Tell me what you think! :)
