From the Nobel Prize-winning author of One Hundred Years of Solitude, a series of short stories told in "spare, unpretentious…picturesque prose" (Library Journal).
Written with compassionate realism and wit, the stories in this mesmerizing collection depict the disparities of town and village life in South America, of the frightfully poor and outrageously rich, of memories and illusions, and of lost opportunities and present joys. Stories include "No One Writes to the Colonel", "Tuesday Siesta", "One of These Days", "There Are No Thieves in This Town", "Balthazar's Marvelous Afternoon", "Montiel's Widow", "One Day After Saturday", "Artificial Roses", and "Big Mama's Funeral".

Great writing and great performance. Might I suggest a little more time before the following story begins. Give the reader a chance to ponder.
I'm a teacher in Florida who loves to listen to books whenever possible! I enjoy listening to classics in audiobook format. Happy reading!
The stories were short and enjoyable, and some of them tied into other GGM works (particularly One Hundred Years of Solitude).
Rebeca Buendia, a carryover from One Hundred Years of Solitude, because I liked hearing from her again.
Gotta go with Rebeca again.
There were plenty of parts that made me laugh!
Fun short stories!
